Maldives Sees Progress in Flattening the Curve – NEOC

National Emergency Operations Center has revealed that Maldives is making progress in flattening the curve.

Speaking at the press conference, spokesperson Mabrouq Azeez shared the graph which compares the actual figures with projections on virus spread comparing with 25 percent compliance to social distancing measures and 75 percent compliance to social distancing measures.

As seen from the chart by NEOC, the red line depicts the projected virus numbers at 25 percent compliance to social distancing measures, while the white line shows actual virus numbers, and the blue line reflects virus numbers at 75 percent compliance to social distancing measures.

The actual numbers shows that the efforts put in place to curb the curve is bringing actual results close to the 75 percent compliance numbers.

Authorities suggest that this is a really good sign towards flattening the curve.

The first case from capital, Male’ City was confirmed on April 15, leading to a lockdown on the greater Male’ area and a ban on all non-essential travel between Maldivian islands.
