Hello, I am an anesthesiologist, ICU physician, and have a PhD in Pharmacology (my graduate studies included work on viral transmission). I work in a large hospital system in a Northeastern city that is about to be overwhelmed by the coronavirus crisis. Many of you may have heard about "flattening the curve" - I am here to answer your questions about why this goal is so critical as we prepare for what may be the worst public health disaster this country has ever seen.
