Flattening the Curve
As the COVID-19 pandemic spread, the phrase “flatten the curve” became widely known. It refers to the things people can do to space the total number of infections out over a longer period of time. This helps prevent the health-care system from being overloaded. Flattening the Curve examines social distancing and the other measures that people took to slow the spread of the disease. Features include a glossary, references, websites, source notes, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Core Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.
