Animals seem to understand the pandemic situation more than we do. Recently, people have been seeing animals doing social distancing and sharing the photos on social media. And if these pics still fail to encourage you to follow social distancing policies then we don’t know what else would.
Despite all the warnings, there are still those who underestimate the importance of quarantine and social distancing. Some people still attend mass gatherings and go to crowded places like it’s nothing. Civil disobedience is indeed very infuriating as these unruly citizens are only making the situation worse. They might learn a thing or two from these animals. This might make them realize that these creatures are even more disciplined than them.
Animals Doing Social Distancing
Due to the fact that the COVID-19 spreads through human-to-human transmission, limiting the ways people come in close contact with each other is the best way to stop the pandemic. This is why many countries are implementing social distancing policies. This involves staying away from other people when possible or better yet stay at home in self-isolation. If going outside is necessary, it’s important to keep space between you and others. And try to avoid crowded places as much as possible. For essential trips such as buying groceries, you should stay at least 6 feet away from other people.

Animals, on the other hand, are insusceptible to COVID-19 infection as there is no evidence to prove otherwise. But even if animal transmission is highly unlikely, animals seem to follow rules better than humans do. Animals doing social distancing appear to serve as a reminder to us. They’re as if telling us how important it is to follow rules in order to save lives.
