There are X number of beds available for critical care in a hospital. This care enables people who otherwise might die to have a chance. As the virus spreads it will affect Y people who will need critical care. This value Y changes over time, and if Y > X then the hospitals can't cope. Y is dependent on how fast the virus spreads. Slow it down and we keep Y < X.

That's all it is. It's not about stopping the spread. It's about giving those most at risk a chance to get treatment at a hospital so complications from the virus can be treated. Keep them alive long enough, the body ditches the virus, the body recovers, one less fatality.

Having said that, every day there is new news on treatments being tested that are actively treating the virus, and testing of vaccines has already begun.
cheers
