A bit of public health jargon has become a rallying cry in the fight against the novel coronavirus, as people around the world try to “flatten the curve” by taking necessary actions to stop the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.
The “curve” refers to something called an epi curve, a graph line that charts the rise, peak and fall of existing infections over time. The “flatten the curve” concept is simple: if everyone gets sick at the same time, hospitals will be overwhelmed and people will die without treatment. However, if everyone does what they can to avoid spreading the virus and “flatten” the infection numbers on any given day, hospitals will have a better chance of giving all patients the help they need over a longer period of time.
