Significant Benefits of Social Distancing
According to researchers from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, the implementation of social distancing policies corresponded with significant reductions in the transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, both in the U.S. and globally, providing evidence that social distancing is a useful tool in preventing further spread of COVID-19.
The study, published in PLOS ONE, estimates that social distancing policies enacted nationally in 46 countries prevented an estimated 1.57 million cases of COVID-19 over a two-week period, representing a 65% reduction in new cases. The researchers suggest these data emphasize the significant benefits that can be achieved by individuals practicing social distancing measures.
