In the fight against the coronavirus, contact tracing is vital to successfully reopen the economy while containing and limiting the transmission of the virus. Contact tracing is a proven method to respond to outbreaks and is essential to strengthen the country’s public health infrastructure and prevent a second-wave of COVID-19 from occurring.
Social distancing is essential to prevent community transmission of coronavirus. Unlike self-quarantine or isolation, social distancing places no locational constraints and instead focuses on behavioral practices to decrease the risk of exposure.
The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to spread with over 45,000 confirmed cases and 1,100 recorded deaths.
