Social distancing is noted to be an effective strategy for stemming the progression of Covid-19 in countries including China and South Korea. In Italy, new confirmed cases are finally beginning to drop in response to social distancing. But social distancing can lead to social isolation. Social distancing means physical distancing, it does not mean social disconnection or breaking social bonds. In fact, in times like these social connections and community solidarity are particularly crucial. To be effective, social distancing relies on social cohesion. Social cohesion is defined as the willingness of members of a society to cooperate with one another in order to survive and prosper.
