Social Distancing May Be Needed Until 2022 – Harvard Study


Report says, some forms of social distancing may be needed until at least 2022 to stop the spread of Coronavirus and to prevent the health care system from being overwhelmed.

New Harvard study on COVID-19 warned that sporadic periods of social distancing could be needed for another two years to prevent reoccurrences in future.

The researchers also warned that lifting social distancing measures at once could make a second surge in infections more severe.

Meanwhile, current social distancing measures in the United States are due to expire on April 30 but health experts are urging for continued social distancing measures to defeat the Coronavirus.   

Health experts think it is unlikely that COVID-19 will follow its closest cousin, Sars-CoV-1, and be eradicated by intensive public health measures after causing a brief pandemic. 

Instead, the transmission could resemble that of pandemic influenza by circulating seasonally.
