What is #flattenthecurve?

this is one of the trending #hashtags on the Internet. Amid the ongoing crisis and chaos of coronavirus, medical officials are doing everything in their power to slow down the spread of the virus. In the scientific field, it is expressed as flattening the curve—slowing the spread of infection, which can be almost as important as stopping it altogether.   

 

The concept behind "flattening the curve" is simple: if everyone gets infected at the same time, hospitals won't be able to care for all the people who will eventually die without treatment. So if everyone adheres to the recommendations laid out to avoid spreading the virus and “flatten” the infection numbers on any given day, medics will have a greater chance of giving all patients the help that they need.

What type of mask do I need?
