929. What is "Social distance"?
original uploaded on 2020/04/18 17:23 (GMT)

Japanese Edition of this blog page

We often hear one of related terms of New coronavirus ,
"Social distance".

Original meaning of "Social distance" is
"(Psychology)Familiar and unfamiliar degree
between individual and individual, individual and group, and group and group.
In the case of this distance is shorter and shorter,
those two feel more familiarity each other
and take more favorable attitude each other",
Sanseido's dictionary said.
(This is Japanese dictionary and translated by Masao Takaku.)

BUT, in this new coronavirus case,
this term, "Social distance : at least 2m",
means
"Strongly recommended Distance between individuals
for avoiding infection new coronavirus between individuals : at least 2m"
, I think.

Viruses infect between Human beings,
from individual to individual,
that is,
concretely from some face person to another face person.

So,
if we do not take enough length of distance between persons,
we will catch and put other person's virus into our bodies.

In specially talking,
not only big splash water which we can see
fly from one's mouth by sneezes and coughs,
small splash water which we cannot see
also fly from one's mouth only by talking loudly.
So,
we must take this distance for avoiding these splashes with virus from infected patients.

If we eat and talk with other people by face to face,
we will suck other people's splash when we open our mouth big and eat food.
(In usual living, we do not mind such small splashes.)

Then, we are under rich contact condition each other
and we tend to be given other people's virus.

Please be careful.

(By a term of "Social distance", we cannot imagine this true meaning directly.
So, I want a name giver to suggest a term which suit concepts more.
If we cannot receive meanings of terms by heart,
such terms may not lead our actions directly.)

I added "Our actions when we eat"


I want to write clearer like
gIf we eat and talk with other people by face to face,
we will suck other people's splash when we open our mouth big and eat food.h



< Correction 2 in Japanese edition > 2020.04.19 (JST)
I rewrote as "Strongly recommended Distance between individuals
for avoiding infection new coronavirus between individuals : at least 2m"


I added "at least 2m" like
"Strongly recommended Distance between individuals
for avoiding infection new coronavirus between individuals : at least 2m"
.



< Additional Writings > 2020.04.19 (JST)
This distance is "Bodies distance between persons"


I want to write one more to clear meaning,

This distance is
"Bodies distance between persons (individuals)".

And more,
this length, 2m, is a guide based on scientific experiments and observations.
I think that we are recommended to take a long length as long as we can.

It is uncertain that viruses are on every splash from a patient with virus.
But I think we do not need to play a Russian roulette.



< Correction 3 in Japanese edition > 2020.04.19 (JST)
I rewrote as "this length, 2m, is a guide based on scientific experiments and observations."


To clear meaning,

I added words, "this length, 2m, is" like
"this length, 2m, is a guide based on scientific experiments and observations."
