Flatten That Curve
- A flatter curve means there is a slower infection rate and while the same number of people could be infected overall, this will take place over a longer period of time.
- A sharp increase in the curve means the disease is spreading quickly, which can lead to many people being infected at the same time and the health system becoming overloaded.
- Containing measures - such as social distancing - aim to lower the infection rate and, consequently, to "flatten the curve".
We must continue to use our local businesses
Use it or lose it. Southbourne high street has been growing in social style eating houses, artisan foods, pubs, restaurants, cafe's and more. Their owners need support from the local community more than ever, they are all out there trying to help the community which we live in and keep their head above water. Gordon Fong local Southbourne resident and responsible for the site Southbourne Groove describes the area as The SoBo Mile (Facebook Page)- For Bournemouth foodies.
We hope that this update helps, Please #StaySafeStayAtHome and another big cheer for all of our NHS workers, Shop Workers and all the other people who are doing what they can in these strange times. We hope to see you on the other side of this for a massive Southbourne party.
