Think in terms of beds. If we can get patients treated and released before the next patient comes in, we're fine. If we have three new patients admitted before someone gets released, we're screwed. Now extrapolate that to everything needed to care for critical patients.

No, it can't be stopped. But social distancing can slow it down.
