The best message I've seen are simulations that illustrate the impact of social distancing on flattening the curve & ensuring our healthcare system is not overwhelmed. I've seen this in news articles and blog posts. This information is useful because it describes the assumptions/details used to build the simulation, explaining to the reader that there are many asymptomatic carriers that spread the disease when they are not sick, and that once recovered, patients will not spread the disease to others.
