Flattening the Curve


As the news continues to pile up, there is a lot of discussion of this idea of "flattening the curve" and how we need to be socially responsible on a large scale for the interventions to be effective for everyone, so as not to overwhelm the health care system.

If I thought people were panic-buying before, it has reached new levels--grocery stores have bare shelves--bread, pasta, sauce, rice, soup, and of course, toilet paper, Even milk aisles have a pittance left. It is weird because the supply chains are not interrupted and stock is still coming in, but I suppose the notion of quarantine and shelter in place makes people nervous.
