What scared me was when my said it's not a given that it will drop immediately after the peak....the peak might plateau for awhile... Don't mean to scare you dear Aunt Bea, but better to be prepared.The thing that I'm trying to understand is that after we hit the peak/flatten the curve how long we will need to continue to self-quarantine.
