Although people are resisting the physical distancing ordinance because there is no community transmission, how about we reverse the argument? And think different.
We practice safe distancing so that we prevent the community transmission – and a potential lockdown. Instead of waiting for the lockdown and then distance ourselves, let’s prevent the lockdown from happening by safe distancing now.
It is great to see people practicing it across the country. Worst comes, and god forbid, we are better prepared with our personal behaviours.
Social and behavioural changes take time – and time is not a luxury with this pandemic. Need to start now.
