COVID-19: Why Social Distance Is Important In Today's Times

Physicians and wellness professionals have been promoting social distancing after the spread of COVID-19 and the lockdowns that have happened uniformly. What's up?  Is it really practical? But is it going to help you remain healthy?  We're taking a look into that today.

At the early part, everyone must understand the difference between the terms ' quarantine, ' ' isolation ' and ' social distance.

Isolation: refers to safety for those who are already sick. It is required to protect the safe from diseases in the environment and to help them get stronger. That way, it allows the ill to spread and often to cause the infected person worse.

Quarantine: It is done by individuals or groups of persons who are not currently sick or may have signs that have been subjected to sickness or areas with a background of sickness.

Social distance: This is a safety precaution mainly taken to reduce the gradual spread of the disease, which aims to avoid large gatherings or opportunities where many people from different backgrounds come together, expose themselves, and therefore put others at risk.

WHO suggested social distancing Tips?

Hold a space of at least 1 meter (3 feet) between yourself and someone who coughs or sneezes.

If anyone coughs or sneezes, it sprays tiny droplets of fluid from the nose or mouth that may hold viruses. When you are so near, by coughing you will breathe in the droplets, like the COVID-19 virus.

Why in today's times is social distance important?

The number of incidents and individuals confirmed positive for COVID-19 has risen dramatically in the past 2-3 weeks around the globe, and health authorities are worried about the possibility of raising the number of deaths over the coming weeks. It is the only direction that analysts hope to "flatten the curve" which has been exponential in the past few weeks, illustrating the rapid rise in the number of cases in the last few days.

While it is a challenge to hold people in their houses, this is widely promoted by health professionals and governments around the world. From sports events to film outings to mass gatherings, governments around the world and India have put a lot of pressure on them. Schools, colleges, malls and gyms, and other public places and institutions across the country have been shut down for the rest of March to consider the future of the situation and see if rapid spread can be lessened. Offices workers work-from-home as a new golden rule and travel for work has been greatly reduced, if not entirely cut.
