The Power of Social Distancing



That is staggering. Although the selfish amongst us who are still insisting on going to the pub etc will still think it is not about them...

4. It's such a powerful chart

that I want to cram it down certain people's throats, but I know they'll demand to know where it came from. I have a feeling it's just math, but they probably don't recognize math since it isn't referred to in the Bible.

Thanks.

9. I've been telling people: Google "Washington Post corona simulator"

That should bring up this free article with random simulations which show that social distancing is more effective than even forced quarantine. It gives you a visual reminder of the power of self-isolation, which I think helps people to understand these policies and feel better about them, and hopefully follow them more strictly.

10. That's right! We all have the power to stop this pandemic

by removing ourselves from the equation. I realized this last week. I left work last Wednesday, and have stayed home since, except for two short trips to the grocery store. Talk/text via phone with family and friends. NO social contact what so ever. I realize that not everyone can do this, but if all who can do it, it will BUY TIME for the doctors and scientists to develop effective treatments for those who are already ill, and a vaccine to prevent it in those who are yet unaffected by the virus. Please STAY HOME if you can. We are all in this together!
