Social distancing includes ways to stop or slow the spread of infectious diseases. It means less contact between you and other people. Social distancing measures are steps you can take to reduce social interaction between people. In the present time we all are covered by a poisonous virus which is fatal and this will help reduce the transmission of corona virus (COVID-19).This guidance is for everyone, including children and other persons of society. It advises on social distancing measures we should all be taking to reduce social interaction between people in order to reduce the transmission of corona virus (COVID-19). It is intended for use in situations where people are living in their own homes, with or without additional support from friends, family and careers. The social distance means Avoid contact with someone who is displaying symptoms of corona virus (COVID-19). These symptoms include high temperature and/or new and continuous cough Avoid non-essential use of public transport when possible Avoid large and small gatherings in public spaces, noting that pubs, restaurants, leisure centers and similar venues are currently shut as infections spread easily in closed spaces where people gather together .
Avoid gatherings with friends and family. Keep in touch using remote technology such as phone, internet, and social media Use telephone or online services to contact your GP or other essential services These are some of the major points which we should make into actions. The main reason of spreading of this fatal virus is social interaction. we see all the cases till now has spread just because of social interaction. So at home and other places we should be cautious about all these things. The government has also announced to be home quarantine because it may be fatal not for only yourself but for the whole nation. I request the people especially the people of my valley to stay at home avoid public gathering even if we see how fatal it is the religious leaders has advised to offer religious practices at home. So we should take it serious now because in our valley almost 15 cases has been tested positive for corona virus. So to stop this pandemic virus more we should be serious and should remain quarantined at home .And i also request the people who have travelled from different countries and states to please register their names at concerned hospital camp’s and avoid social interaction because it may be dangerous gore the whole nation. So please be like responsible citizens and remain hand to hand to the government advices so that the whole nation can be protected from this poisonous virus.
