COVID-19 preparedness and prevention aims to reduce infection and death rates, in part by preventing the disease from reaching susceptible people.


A further fear is that unless those numbers are reduced, we will overburden the nation's hospitals and clinics, resulting in a new sort of catastrophe. The simplest reason is that our hospitals have a fighting chance of dealing with it if we can limit the spread and reduce the number of people impacted.
