Canceling large gatherings now, even though the virus is not yet widespread in the U.S., is the best way to go and will allow hospitals to have the resources for the number of people who need care at a given time. Basically, while these measures (which seem premature to many people) may lessen somewhat the overall number of people who get the disease, the more important concept is that they will spread the disease’s progression over a longer timeframe, thus allowing people to receive more effective medical treatment.
The phrase refers to a so-called epidemic curve that is commonly used to visualize why public and individual efforts to contain the spread of the virus are crucial.
