Raising the line while flattening the curve

Most people are familiar with flatten the curve, but to save more lives, the governments also must raise the capacity of their health care system in addition to social distancing and lockdown measurement.

UK, for example raised its capacity by opening the first of the government’s emergency field hospitals to treat coronavirus patients has opened in east London’s ExCel centre (more to come across the country), recruiting hundred of thousands of volunteers for the NHS, and calling some 20,000 former NHS workers back in the job.

Indonesia also raised its capacity by converting Wisma Atlet Kemayoran into emergency COVID-19 hospital, and opening Galang COVID-19 hospital.

Vox explains why the government, in this case the US, needs to raise the line.
