There is a Ben Shapiro tweet that says:
For a variety of reasons, many Americans seem to think that "flattening the curve" means that fewer Americans will get covid-19 total. This is inaccurate. The same number of Americans will get it over time, but the time delay means our systems aren't overwhelmed.
What does the phrase "same number of Americans will get it over time" mean in this context? Does it mean all americans will get it over time?
Based on available data, how do we go about figuring out: what is the percentage of population that will never get COVID-19?
