Social Distancing in State (America). According to a current report, more than 3000 people have died in America due to COVID 19. And there has been a noticeable rise in the number of the infected people that have turned to 160,698 in the state.
Due to which Donald Trump has extended the social distancing in the state (America) until April 30th.
Many of the medical workers and the citizens are fighting the battle of the deadly COVID 19 in the state. Every day double the previous day people are getting infected with this virus.
According to the study, social distancing is the only way to reduce the number of people trapped by this virus. Though this is not the vaccine for this still it will slow the spreading speed.
American’s Step Towards the Social Distancing
Presently, the people in America are stepping up the notion of Social Distancing with most of the people avoiding public places such as Restaurants, Bars, Pubs, etc.
As per the study, more than 75% of the people in America are now avoiding to visit any public place, which was earlier found to be 56%.
In fact, the residents of New York City are advised not to travel domestically. It will help in breaking the virus chain.
As per Trump’s guidelines on Social Distancing, the residents of America were advised to avoid the social gathering of more than 10 members and were also advised to stay at their respective homes.
Can Social Distancing Reduce COVID-19?
As per a statement issued by Indian-American CEO, Social Distancing can reduce the fever which is a key symptom of COVID-19 which can, in turn, reduce the Coronavirus from spreading.
The stats from the study of Coronavirus in the context of Social Distancing states that more than 250 million people in America are forced to stay in their homes in the lieu of death of over 3,000 people.
Medical Workers’ Battle to COVID-19
Meanwhile, the doctors and other medical workers in America are feeling frustrated in the process of fighting what seems to be a never-ending battle.
In the process, thousands of medical workers around the world have fallen sick with the virus, with the hospitals facing a lack of protective resources to own.
As per a Trauma Specialist in Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital, the doctors and nurses are slowly descending into chaos, constantly fearing the outcome of the virus being spread among the staff.
To cope up with the lack of resources, the interns who have relied on theoretical and literature-based knowledge tend to work as per their level of skills without building guidelines.
And when they finish treating one person with the Coronavirus, they head to treat the other patients.
Social Distancing Slowing the Spread of Virus in Washington
On the other side, considering a blog post from the public health department of Seattle & King County, the Social Distancing is helping to slow the spread of deadly COVID-19 in Washington.
It was analyzed from a study that was carried out by an institute specialized in studying disease transmission dynamics.
As per the study carried out, the population mobility and the changes in transmission of COVID-19 over a certain period of time were taken into the account.
The stats obtained from the study shows that over a period of time within the social distancing, the spread of the virus from one person to another dropped by about half of what was found before the social distancing initiative.
Doctors Say Staying in Home Can Save Millions
Two of America’s top disease experts, Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House’s coronavirus response coordinator and Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases addressed the media about the effects which social distancing can have over the virus transmission in the country.
As per Dr. Anthony Fauci, if the people in America try to put the social distancing in a light manner and try to push it back immaturely, there is no doubt in the fact that the country could see even more than 10,000 deaths.
In a similar context, Dr. Deborag Birx stated that how well the people in America respond to social distancing is what will affect the number of death tolls in the country.
He further added that the people need to stay together in this tough time and if they fail to comply with the social distancing, it may cause disaster to the state, accounting for millions of lives.
Trump’s Take on Business “Reopen”
As per the models of the virus spread, it was noted that the upcoming two weeks will be worse for America, seeing which Trump has extended the Social Distancing till April 30.
Earlier, Trump declared that the businesses would be reopened on Easter which made some of the disease experts upset, stating that the move can further worsen the pandemic situation. On asking if he has made a mistake, Trump stated it was not a mistake and was just an aspiration.
Meanwhile, Trump said that the number of deaths that have risen must be the peak which will now start to slow down.
To wrap it up, it is quite evident that America is facing some serious problems in terms of the Novel COVID-19.
The government is taking several steps to slow down the spread of the virus, social distancing being the most important pillar among all.
Seeing the situation, President Trump has extended the social distancing until April 30 for the citizens of America.
But the question is, will the pandemic situation in the country be reduced or worsen in the upcoming weeks? And is only social distancing enough to fight the battle for COVID-19 or the government should also think about locking down the state?
All of these questions are still searching for an answer which will stay pending for maybe a longer period of time.
Till then, stay safe during this pandemic situation and stay at home as much as you can!
