#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. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told people during a White House briefing: “What we need to do is flatten that down. You do that with trying to interfere with the natural flow of the outbreak."

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 the 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.

Using the #FlattenTheCurve hashtag, people are sharing informative yet easy-to-digest infographics on coronavirus. These infographics that you're about to see were shared by an Imgur user under the nickname wooyi and depict the do's and don'ts of social distancing. So scroll down below to see them all and take care of yourself and your loved ones!

I'm walking my dog at 4:30am and have not seen another person out that early. As an introvert, I'm in Heaven. It's been wonderful - so beautiful and peaceful outside.

Ok, here is an important information many ppl seem not to be aware of: Delivery is not done by magic, it is done by actual, breathing ppl who also just want to be save and protect others (WOW, mind blowing!). So PLEASE remember that when you are bored but still too lazy to watch one of the few million online tutorials about how to cook your meals by youself. Same thing with Amazon and others. More deliveries = more danger to spread the virus Sorry, but that bothers me so much So have a nice, chill day on your couch or kitchen and stay save :)

Food deliveries have been left at the door for over a week already where I live, which is not causing any problems.

businesses need to be supported. the restaurants and cafes here are delivering only, and disinfecting almost constantly. I will be happy to order delivery.

This goes for students too. Please, keep caught up on reading and homework while you're away from classes.

Use technology where possible - most meetings don't need to be face2face.

Which sucks for small, family owned restaurants.

Yesterday I learned getting a professional haircut is just as essential as grocery shopping: Hair salons are are among the essential businesses still allowed to open up in Germany :/ (btw, I cut my hair myself)

This is actually something people are asking. Amazing just how obtuse some people can be, isn’t it?
