Isolation: a Potential Cure for Coronavirus #infographic

We all know the coronavirus is a infectious disease. It spreads easily from one person to another - and rapidly. In fact, a person can also catch the disease by touching the same surface as the person infected.

Fortunately, the disease may be handled and avoided by means of precautionary procedures such as improving the hygiene regimen, covering the mouth while sneezing and coughing, and keeping a safe distance from others regardless of their safety.

Nevertheless, several nations around the world have struggled to contain the pandemic, including China, Iran, Italy, UK and the US. Of over 194,000 cases, the virus has spread exponentially worldwide. And the figures tend to grow, as many of the' impacted' countries see the number of cases doubling every three or four days.

Health experts also accept that the spread of COVID-9 can not be stopped but, indeed, it can be slowed down by taking drastic steps such as' social distancing.' Researchers say that the spread of the disease can be substantially decreased by reducing human interaction.

For example, only one person is infected. But the individual continues communicating with others, and the number of cases begins doubling every four days. The toll's risen to 512 cases after 36 days. Government A puts steps in place to tackle the problem, and immediately sees the difference in duplication of time from four days to up to eight days.

Meanwhile, Government B does not deem it appropriate to take any action and finds itself struggling with more than 30,000 cases after 2 months of the outbreak, while Government A has just 4,096 cases.

And then there is Government C that wants to take the same action as Government A after 2,000 cases have been reached. The findings appear to be successful but country C ends up with twice as many cases as country A.
