As the State of Emergency for Covid-19 becomes a reality in Thailand so has social distancing for Thai people. Social distancing is a safety measure intended to minimize the risks of getting infected by Covid-19.
The main purpose of social distancing is to avoid disease transmission. The Thai health department recommends maintaining a 1 meter distance away from other people. Especially anyone who is coughing or sneezing as they spray liquid droplets out of their nose and mouth that may contain the virus.
Coming too close to an infected person can even cause you to breathe in these droplets. Because we never know when a stranger in going to cough or sneeze. Because of this it is best to maintain a safe distance between everyone. Especially when out in public.
