Although there is no treatment for COVID-19, protective measures can limit its impact on communities worldwide (This chart is modified from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control). In the absence of protective measures, the number of people infected (red shaded area) quickly overwhelms total hospital capacity (gray dashed line). Implementing protective measures early in the course of the pandemic (gray shaded area) has two effects: (1) The peak of the outbreak is delayed, giving medical systems more time to respond; and (2) Fewer people become infected.
