Flattening the Curve

The new coronavirus, which surfaced in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December last year, has gripped more than 200 countries and territories around the globe. As of this writing, more than 4.5 million people have been infected with the virus and nearly 300,000 people have died.

As the number of new cases have been growing fast in many countries across the world, the authorities are forced to impose stringent restrictions on people's movements outside their habitations. Many countries have taken steps including closures of airports, sealing borders, and nationwide lockdowns to curb the spread of the disease.

Let us take a look at some of the countries which were successful in flattening the curve.
