Social Distancing


“Why is social distancing an effective method of fighting a contagious disease?”


With the (at time of writing) ongoing Coronavirus epidemic, governments and institutions around the world are urging people to practice Social Distancing from one another. Social distancing is when individuals of a population will keep a certain distance from others at all times (in the case of the Coronavirus about 2 meters/ 6 feet). By ensuring that individuals who might be carriers of the disease stay away from others, it can be effectively contained.
