Social Distancing Lessons From West Bengal: CM Mamata Banerjee Draws Circles On Road To Educate People About The Mandate To Fight Coronavirus

New Delhi: On Thursday (March 26), West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee demonstrated the government’s mandate of following social distancing in the times of coronavirus in her own unique way. Dressed in her trademark white saree, with a handkerchief to her face, Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata was seen drawing circles near a roadside fruit seller and educating people on the need for social distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.
According to the advisory issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), social distancing means a non-pharmaceutical infection prevention and control intervention to avoid or decrease contact between those who are infected and those who are not. This helps in stopping or slowing down the rate and extent of disease transmission in a community, which eventually leads to a decrease in spread, morbidity and mortality due to the disease.
