Today I would like to share a few links on Social Distancing. This is an important term in regard to suppressing the rate of spread of any viral disease, but especially Covid – 19 in this pandemic. One link is a question and answer format with experts. Please see below for the links.
Another important statement came out today from the CDC about limiting social gatherings above 50 people. One exception is for work. See the link for more information.
I am blogging about this because it affects all of us, not only as me as a physician but as an individual and a parent. With all of our children out of school, there is a tendency for them to feel like this is a vacation. It is not. We have to educate and protect them as well as do our part to slow this virus down. It will spread, but Social Distancing is going to keep the rate down thereby allowing our healthcare system resources keep up with those critically ill patients and reduce the death rate.
So please, spread this information to your family and friends and do your part in fighting this pandemic by Social Distancing, as described in these links. If anyone would like a more scientific link describing viral spread and social distancing, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
