Is it safe to walk, run and ride a bike during quarantine due to coronavirus?
San Francisco Mayor London Breed appeared on CNN's March 18 Situational Room to respond to a Jake Tupper virus video showing people training in the city during a coronavirus outbreak. Writes about this Fox News.
Video footage shows people in San Francisco on the Embarcadero freeway jogging and holding hands on the first day of the city’s isolation order. This caused a negative reaction from Tupper.
“The video shows how isolation works in San Francisco,” Tupper said of the recording. - First, we see many people here who do not distance themselves. On the contrary, they hold hands and walk down the street. Usually I would say it's cute, but not in this situation. "
Is it safe to run, go camping, ride a bike or walk outside in public during a coronavirus outbreak?
People in the United States are still allowed to go outside and play sports while they are kept at a safe distance from each other.
“Take a walk” and “go camping” top the list of “safe” measures according to the Los Angeles County Department of Health, as long as the outbreak of coronavirus continues to spread in the region.
A department spokesman said that “cycling and running is great, if not in a group where there is close contact.”
However, if you become ill or think you have a coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises you to stay home, unless you get medical attention.
“Do not go to public places,” the agency's website says.
If you are not sick, walking in the fresh air is useful, provided that you keep your distance, and this helps to limit the spread of the virus. And this is especially important because the virus can spread, even if there are no symptoms at all.
According to Lisa Maragakis, senior director of infection prevention at Johns Hopkins Medicine, social distancing is described as "deliberately increasing the physical space between people to prevent the spread of disease." An example of social distancing is the cancellation of large-scale events.
It is believed that the virus spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets that form when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
The virus more often spreads between people who are in close contact with each other (within 6 feet / 2 meters).
“People in San Francisco are allowed to go out, run, exercise, ride their bicycles,” said Mayor London Breed. “We want citizens to leave their homes only when absolutely necessary to provide basic services. The ultimate goal is to prevent people from communicating closely with each other in order to prevent the spread of the virus as much as possible.
The isolation decree, which entered into force on March 17, requires residents to avoid unnecessary travel and leave their homes only to buy food, medicine and exercise.
