Wochit Postables
A new study shows that social distancing may be the most effective way to reduce spread of COVID-19. The study published in The Lancet found that combining types of physical distancing reduced the spread by as much as 99.3%. Quarantining infected people and their families, closing schools and businesses and social distancing were most effective. Because little is known about the transmissibility of COVID-19, researchers used data from the 2004-05 SARS outbreak.
