In breaking the chain of the spread of the COVID-19 corona virus, the community is expected to play an active role in implementing Physical Distancing. What is Physical Distancing? Why is it important?
Physical Distancing is maintaining a physical distance of at least 1.5 meters from other people and avoiding crowds to prevent transmission of COVID-19 disease. In fact, said Government Spokesperson for Handling COVID-19, Achmad Yurianto, Physical Distancing is one of the keys to breaking the chain of the spread of the COVID-19 corona virus.
“Keeping distance (Physical Distancing) and washing hands are the keys to breaking the chain of distribution of corona. It is important for people to wash their hands before eating, drinking, and touching their faces,” Yuri said at a live streaming press conference at BNPB Graha Building, Jakarta, recently- just this.
Therefore, Physical Distancing Activities are carried out as a health strategy to prevent or slow the spread of the virus. In fact, Physical Distancing has become a new norm in life after the emergence of various diseases such as corona now. In addition, Physical Distancing for people who have been infected by the virus is also done by isolating themselves and quarantining themselves for 14 days.
This method is called very important to do now. Because, until now researchers have not found a vaccine to protect the body and a cure for corona virus.
In addition, here is an infographic about why Physical Distancing for 14 days is important, as quoted by the Instagram account @ dit.promkes sourced from the Indonesian Ministry of Health:
