The Power Of Social Distancing

This graphic, attributed to Robert Signer, assistant professor of medicine at University of California, shows how social distancing can dramatically reduce the rate of infection.

If you’re not used to deaing with exponential progressions as part of your work or study, you’re likely to find the rate of infection quite shocking.

If we can slow the rate of infection then we will have enough resources to care for the people who need hospital treatment to have a chance of surviving COVID-19. If we don’t slow the rate of infection, the hospitals will be overwhelmed and COVID-19 will kill people we could have saved.
