29. for the 90% who present as a cold, that will be fine

but the 10% that require hospitalization and ventilation, then there are only so many beds and so many ventilators. The idea is to slow the spread so that the 10% get treated and live. If they cannot be treated, they die. So, as it spreads all over the globe, if the spread is slowed down there will be a better chance that those requiring hospitalization will survive.

That is the reason we all must stop going to crowded places and events. As much as possible.
