Social Distancing is not possible in our society’s at ground level 14 Facts
Medical intellect about the term “Social Distancing”
Social distancing is a non-pharmaceutical infection prevention and control intervention implemented to avoid/decrease contact between those who are infected with a disease causing pathogen and those who are not, so as to stop or slow down the rate and extent of disease transmission in a community. This eventually leads to decrease in spread, morbidity and mortality due to the disease.
English Language Intellect
While “social distancing” is still widely used, it may be sending the wrong message and contributing to social isolation. “Rather than sounding like you have to socially separate from your family and friends, 'physical distancing' simplifies the concept with the emphasis on keeping 6 feet away from others,”
Importance of Social Distancing
When someone infected with the corona virus coughs or sneezes, very fine particles of their spit are spread in the air. These particles contain viruses of the corona virus.
These viral particles can enter your body by way of breath when approaching an infected person. If you touch a place where these particles have fallen and then touch your eye, nose or mouth with the same hand, then these particles reach your body.
In this case, using a tissue while coughing and sneezing, not touching your face without washing your hands and avoiding contact with an infected person are very important to prevent the virus from spreading.
That is why people are being told not to gather more people in one place, to keep distance from each other, to talk or shake hands to avoid corona.
Four phases of epidemic
There are four stages of outbreak of corona virus epidemic
In the first phase, those people who are infected with the corona virus came from another country and they already had corona virus.
In the second phase, the infection spreads locally, but these are people who have come in contact with some infected person who has returned from traveling abroad.
Third level and slightly considered dangerous. This is 'community transmission'. Community transmission's occurs when a person succumbs without directly coming into contact with an infected person or traveling to an infected country.
The fourth phase occurs when the infection takes the form of an epidemic locally.
