3. Social Distancing
KEEP AWAY FROM PEOPLE. No casual touching, kissing, hugging and all that mushy stuff. Learn to live with yourself. Even if not for you, do it for others especially the elderly around you.

Give at least 2 metres distance from people. So not to be tools in the hands of the ‘evil one’.
