Are We Flattening the Curve?

Friends,

Is our isolation helping? In mid-March, the rate of increase of new confirmed cases was around 40%. Yesterday it was around 15%. I made this graph of what the case load in the U.S. MIGHT have been if we were not in our homes.

It may seem like you’re wasting your time, but you are helping! Many people AREN’T sick today because of our efforts. So keep it up!

Don’t fear, but be smart,
Erik
