Taylor Swift, we need you to help us Flatten That Curve!

As you read this, the tireless and heroic men and women of the CDC and other global public health agencies have given us an important instruction:   we need to "flatten the curve" of new cases of Coronavirus. We can’t stop the virus entirely, but if we slow it down enough, we can make sure all patients get the care they need.

Every single American needs to understand this message NOW.,  But who can help get the word out? 

Tireless and heroic as they are, the men and women of the CDC may not be the best people for *this* job. The best person for this is way more charming and way more attractive and really good at holding people's attention even if she's telling them hard truths, with a proven ability to instantly put a word or phrase on the lips of millions.

Who I'm talking about is obvious:

Taylor Swift, your nation needs YOU!

Ms.Swift, only you have the talent, admiration, and recognition necessary for this critical public public information endeavor. We ask you to work with public communication officials at the CDC to develop an emotionally-vivid, yet poppy and danceable song telling people what they need to do to flatten that curve. It’s everyone’s responsibility to flatten that curve as much as possible: with a catchy song, you can reach millions instantly!

This idea may seem silly, but it would work! During the 2014 Ebola Outbreak in West Africa major pop artists recorded songs telling people critical information about how to keep themselves safe from the virus. It worked there then, and it can work here now.

Ms. Swift, if you're reading this, I am a huge fan. This may seem like a departure for you but I believe it'll just be another one of your successful self-reinventions. I have no idea how to make the phrase "flatten the curve" catchy or appealing in any way, but I know you can think of something. You wrote the lyrics to "Gorgeous", so I'm sure you can figure out a fun way to tell people to wash their hands for 30 seconds.

In addition to its educational value, "Untitled Taylor Swift Coronavirus Project" would give all of us something to share that's fun about something that is going to otherwise be quite stressful. That's a huge benefit to public health too.

Thanks for reading! Please sign and share!
