FLATTENING THE CURVE
IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT HOSPITALIZATIONS


Flattening the Curve isn't just about hospitals over-filling, not to mention that ~25% of COVID-19 hospitalizations end up in death.

The term was coined here at the University of Michigan by Dr. Howard Markel. He states:

|| “If you don’t have as many cases coming to the hospitals and clinics at once, it can actually lower the number of total deaths from the virus and from other causes,” he says. “AND, IMPORTANTLY, IT BUYS US TIME FOR UNIVERSITY AND GOVERNMENT SCIENTISTS, AND INDUSTRY, TO CREATE NEW THERAPIES, MEDICATIONS AND POTENTIALLY A VACCINE.”
