As we all know, the world is suffering from a major disease known as the COVID-19, and so far, no antidote has been discovered. However, governments all around the world are trying their best to make different policies to restrict the impact of this virus. One of the most effective ways that have emerged is social distancing. This virus needs a host to travel, and it works as per the dominoes effect. Therefore, self-quarantine is the only possible way at the moment that can reduce its impact and fatality rate throughout the world.
