The scale spread of Covid-19 and the lack of awareness that populations have shown in relation to the subject has already led to the creation of movements on social networks that call for all people to take measures to avoid contagion. The main slogans are #euficoemcasa and #travaracurva.
The curve that cybernauts intend to stop is the same curve that the French Minister of Health drew live on French television, according to El País. "A picture is worth a thousand words," said Olivier Véran, when he drew a graph summarizing the global strategy against the new coronavirus: trying to stop the epidemic curve.
The Minister of Health painted a steep mountain to represent the number of people infected with coronavirus in a short time and then drew a horizontal line to mark the capacity of hospitals. According to the drawing, if the peak of the epidemic exceeds the ceiling, it could cause the health system to collapse. Then, he drew a smaller mountain, but with a more extensive base to represent the objective that needs to be achieved: “Always be below the saturation threshold, so that the epidemic is less violent and intense”.

The civil awareness movement for self-isolation first appeared in Italy, a European country with the most cases of infection with the new coronovirus so far, through the hashtag “#LoRestoACasa”. There were several celebrities who joined and called on people to stay in their homes as a way to protect themselves and prevent the spread of others, among them Laura Pausini, Paolo Sorrentino, Tziano Ferro and Chiara Ferragni.
Singer Laara Pausili posted on her official Twitter account asking the Italian population to be calm, given the seriousness of the situation.
Ragazzi, non c'è da farsi arrendere dal panico, but it is important to get the situation right and it will be serious. Per il bene vostro and his persone to cuete tenete, state the house, no muovetevi if not strictly necessary. Protezione tra esseri Simili is now showing it! #IoRestoACasa pic.twitter.com/zfqN4TB5iw

In Spain, more than 31,000 tweets were published with the hashtag “#YoMeQuedoEnCasa” (I stay at home) calling attention to the importance of people isolating themselves. The other motto used was exactly “#FrenarLaCurva” (stop the curve), which had about 60,000 publications. Hashatags such as “#YoElijoSerResponsable” (I choose to be responsible), “#YoElijoSalvarVidas” (I choose to save lives) and “# QuédateEnCasa” (stay at home) were other created with the intention of promoting social awareness against the spread of the new coronavirus.

My priests and I are going to spend a time without being able to see my sister, a primary care physician, so that there is no possible contagion. Doctors have been asked to have their only human contact with patients. We also have to be responsible #YoMeQuedoEnCasa

Ni visits personas de riesgo
If you have any symptoms, NO VAYAS TO EMERGENCY unless saved. Call enabled phones. NO home salting.

I have symptoms, I don't know how they feel, but #YoMeQuedoEnCasa out of civility. My social plans were canceled out of respect and solidarity with medical teams.

Everybody wants to lie down in bed instead of going to work and the time DEBERÍAS HACERLO takes you to the bar to drink some water.
