It reduces peron-to-person interactions, and therefore slows the spread of the virus. to an extent that hopefully, the healthcare facilities will not be overwhelmed with cases.

Yes-but we have to shop and collect medication.....unless our governments are planning to starve us.

Around here, they are keeping essential places of business open. Food stores, restaurants (take-out only) pharmacies, gas stations, banks and (I kid you not) liquor stores. :D

BUT...

Jimmy Buffett is sure in a plight;

His drinking has gone outta sight.

Poor Jimmy's distraught

Cuz his sex life is naught;

They shut the bordellos up tight.  :O

Not a big problem for us. Ranch supplies are stocked up and meds come by mail. I don't mind in the least if it's helping.

With the exception of a few, I'll do my best. I'll miss some but we all have Skype and such.

Dan I thought your graphic is really good, it explains very well why social distancing is helpful. To reduce the contagion means 'flattening the curve,' as Tink mentions so not everyone gets sick at once and the health care system can cope.

During WWI and the Spanish flu, the single most helpful factor in recovery was quality of nursing care; and now in 2020 pandemic we must do everything possible so every sick person has the very best chance to recover.

Here is a video from a channel I found, this health care professional in UK is giving the latest information from all over the world plus the results of research published in medical journals like LANCET.

This information from this morning he is saying that one meter (three feet) social distancing is too short, we need to try for six feet I notice your chart is based on 1.5 metres but I have been doing only 3:

If anyone outside our home comes closer than 6 feet, I hold my breath until I am well past. :ermm:

Yes Tink, I do that also. 

And, we are in good company too, I listened to a news interview with a physician at Harborview Hospital in Seattle. They are barely coping with the influx of people with COVID-19 flu, and short on protective gear. So this physician said that when they pass a hospital room with a coronavirus patient inside, they just hold their breath until well past the door. :(

The physician is a single mom with little ones at home age 6 and 7, and she has to teach them not to run up for cuddles when she gets home but wait for her to shower...she changes clothes and decontaminates before leaving the hospital, and then goes through another protocol when she gets home, trying to protect her children.
