The most drastic measure sealing off entire countries. Each country has its own measurements as like individual villages were initially isolated, but now at this current stage, the whole country is a restricted area. Schools, universities are closed, people should stay at home and only be on the go when absolutely necessary. Shops, restaurants even mosques are also closed only grocery stores and shops selling essentials are allowed to remain open till permitted time.
Few social contacts reduce the risk of spreading
All measures have one goal. Shut down social contacts as far as possible. One of the most efficient measures to slow down the pace of spreading and to prevent the uncontrolled spread of the virus.
This also means that schools throughout the world are closed for the time being. Scientists were initially unsure whether school closures were a sensible measure. The problem: Since the parents of many children work in the health system, health care could be impaired because the parents have to take care of their children.
The number of infected people will continue to increase
According to the scientists, this is a serious and dynamic situation and has classified the risk of the spreading of COVID-19 is increasing. The situation is reassessed several times a day. In addition to the strategy, it is still possible to detect individual infections as early as possible in order to slow the spread of the virus as much as possible. Particularly vulnerable people should be protected and the capacities of the hospitals increased.
Avoid social contacts as much as possible
However, this is also about personal responsibility of the citizens. The less social contact there is, the lower the risk of infection and spread whether at home or in the fresh air. The so-called “social distancing” is one of the most effective methods to prevent the spread of the viral pathogen by droplet infection.
