FLATTEN THE CURVE

by Siouxsie Wiles and Toby Morris

This animation shows the impact of proper social distancing. Social distancing is about staying away from other people to slow down, if not stop, the spread of the COVID-19 so that healthcare workers and facilities can cope with the number of patients who need care. If we’re all sick at once, the systems will be overwhelmed and everyone will be worse off.

STAYING SAFE AND CONNECTED

  1. Maintain physical distancing NOT social isolation.
  2. Call, text, and message friends, family, and neighbours today.
  3. Limit face-to-face interactions.
  4. If you are in an at-risk population, please stay home.

“Thuma Mina” means “send me” – the COVID-19 pandemic is the most definitive “Thuma Mina” moment for our country. Never before in the history of our democracy has our country been confronted by such a severe situation; but, it is a situation which we will be able to overcome if we work together.
