Social distancing is a set of medical recommendations that helps prevent the spread of infectious diseases, including the current COVID-19 pandemic. Guidelines by public health authorities call for at least six feet of physical distancing from one another. In addition to not shaking hands or hug greetings, those individuals practicing social distancing should not gather together in large groups. In Ohio and Ontario, groups of less than 10 people are considered safe.
Former Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Scott Gottlieb claimed “nobody knows” where the six feet of social distancing separation recommendation came from. On an interview with CBS’s Face The Nation, Gottlieb indicated the rule was arbitrary and not necessarily based on science. “Nobody knows where it came from. Most people assume that the six feet of distance, the recommendation for keeping six feet apart, comes out of some old studies related to flu, where droplets don’t travel more than six feet.”
“When it became three feet, the basis for the CDC’s decision to ultimately revise it from six to three feet was a study that they conducted the prior fall ,” he explained. “So they changed it in the spring .”
Globally, people have been assaulted, beaten, and arrested for failing to comply with covid tyrant social distancing mandates.
