Flatten the curve refers to the projected number of people who will contract COVID-19 over a period of time. It aims to tell people that the speed at which the virus spreads in the world should be reduced, so that government bodies, scientists and hospitals are well-prepared to take care of every patient. The longer it takes, the more prepared we will be to fight it together. And to flatten this curve, it is important to wash your hands, work from home, maintain a distance and stay clean.
Since coronavirus is spread through respiratory droplets, when people cough or sneeze, maintaining a social distance can help reduce the chances of picking the virus up and spreading it to others. To convey this and get people out of their denial mode, various brands took to social media and started talking about self isolation and flattening the curve.

To maintain a social distance with people around you, it is important to stay put. Brands have also started using humour to remind people that we are in it together. Using memes and humour, ironically, is proving to be an effective way of communicating the seriousness of the issue.
And when you get to eat bhujia and watch Netflix while attempting to work, you should not be complaining about quarantining yourself. This is what brands reminded their audiences:
Here is to hoping that more companies let their employees work from home and people start taking the importance of social distancing seriously.
