What does it mean to “flatten the curve?”

Soon after a public debate set in nearly every country which went viral under the hashtag #flattenthecurve. The novel coronavirus has maintained a steady march through many European countries at a velocity much higher than what was observed in China before.

The chart below compares the spread of new infections for several countries. Two reference lines have been added in order to better estimate the speed of the spread. The data is presented on a log scale like it was done in charts that were published before by the Financial Times and or Datawrapper. In Germany and the USA the increase is about 33% per day. In other countries such as South Korea or Italy, this rate was initially even higher, but the spread has already been curbed by interventions in public life.
