Strict social distancing essential - GMOA

Dr. Haritha Aluthge

Only the areas which had locked down maintain 90 percent of social distancing which is excellent, the Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge said.

According to Dr. Aluthge, the public must remain within their households except when essential to proceed outdoors. It is necessary for at least 80 percent of the total population to be indoors in their homes.

Dr. Aluthge pointed out that the social distancing in districts where curfew continues is 70 percent which is satisfactory but the areas where the curfew is lifted from time to time are the worst affected.

Only 50 percent of social distancing noticed in the areas where the curfew is lifted intermittently.  This is a very dangerous trend. The entire country must maintain 80 percent of social distancing in order to control COVID-19 without letting it to reach to 3b stage or may be 4th stage of the disease which is the most dangerous stage, he added.
