COVID-19/Social Distancing

Social Distancing is key to slow down the epidiological spread of the disease.



The wording might be misunderstood in way that people must perserve a social distance to other people. It just means physical distance in face-to-face approach. Talking about notion of "social distance" can be annotated in way, that other means of social contacts (e.g. digital social interaction)

  • telephone,
  • video conference,
  • messsages, ...

must replace the close distance face-to-face interaction. In fact the digital social interaction is useful to avoid isolation of community member in society.
