The phrase "flatten the curve" is now a mainstream phrase.

But how does that phrase relate to us, and how do we effectively do that.louisiana leads the world in case growth over the past two weeks, according to dr. gary wagner with the university of louisiana at lafayette.

Mitigation efforts can help to reduce the number of daily cases and to lessen the pressure on the healthcare system.tha's why governor edwards has issued a stay at home order for the entire state.

I's important for everyone - to the best of their ability - comply with this order.

By doing this we can flatten this curve.

We will continue to see new cases for a longer period of time ... but it will be at a far less strain to our healthcare system.

According to a study published by the harvard global health institute ... there are about thirteen thousand - eight hundred total hospital beds in louisiana.

But on average, there are only slightly less than six thousand available hospital beds at any given time.

Looking at the projections over the next six months ... we will need more than twenty nine thousand hospital beds to care for all patients administered to the hospital.

Now le's look at icu bed numbers.

There are about fifteen hundred total icu beds in the state, and a litlle over six hundred available icu beds.

According to these projections, we will about sixtythree hundred icu beds over the next six months the percentage of all hospital beds that would need to be committed to covid-19 patients over the next sixteen months is about 212 percent.

For icu beds i's 416 percent.

That means we would need about two and four times the number of hospital and and icu beds, respecitvively, than we currently have in order to provide a bed for each patient.

Tha's a burden we can help relieve our healthcare system of by following the governo's stay at home order.

We know how quickly this disease spreads.

By adhering to social distancing we can help limit the spread of the virus ... flatten the curve ... and lessen the strain on our precious healthcare system.

Adam over to you!
