Flattening the Curve: Public health officials are asking Americans to practice social distancing to help “flatten the curve.” The curve represents the number of people who are infected with COVID-19 over a period of time. Flattening the curve means slowing the spread of a virus so that there aren’t as many people infected with COVID-19 at the same time. This is important because the U.S. health care system can only care for a certain number of infected patients at a given time. A flatter curve means that the demand for health care does not exceed the system’s capacity.
