To stop the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, serious measures are being implemented the world over, from citywide quarantines to cancellation of large gatherings .
Public health professionals are urging “social distancing” – basically, staying away from crowds and other
peoples’ personal space – to curb the spread of the virus.
Though the disease seems to hit the elderly and immunocompromised the hardest , even young and healthy
people are strongly encouraged to practice social distancing. Why?
Flattening the curve
Basically, it all comes down to the realities of the limits of the health care system. We all need to understand the Math behind the spread of this disease, and do everything we can to slow the spread of the virus. This is the scenario we can still hope to achieve in the U.S. It’s worked before.
