    欢迎收听 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。大家好,我是冯菲菲。

    Roy
    …and me, Roy.

    Feifei
    Roy, why are you hitting that table with a hammer?

    Roy
    Well, I got your message about flattening the curve, and then I saw that this table had a bit of a bump in it, so I wanted to make sure you were happy – no curves on this table now.

    Feifei
    No, Roy. “Flatten the curve” 的意思可不是让你把桌子上凸起来的地方给磨平。“Flatten the curve” 用来指降低、平滑图表或曲线图上的峰值。

    Roy
    Oh… because you were talking about the rate of infection in the UK. It's really important to 'flatten the curve' of the infection to avoid our health care service being overwhelmed with too many patients at one time.

    Feifei
    That’s right. Now, let's listen to these examples.

    Examples
    The government have introduced social distancing measures to try and flatten the curve.

    We need to flatten the curve to prevent too many admissions into hospital.
    Flattening the curve is vital to help save lives.
