Why is it so hard to stop the spread of the coronavirus?

ANSWER

Stopping the pandemic depends on the actions of each and every one of us, especially as cities and states work to open back up. Many of us are the silent spreaders; but others, who aren’t infected, also play a pivotal role in ending or continuing this pandemic.

Without changing our behaviors and following the basics of distancing ourselves 6 feet, avoiding large group gatherings, no face touching, wearing face masks, and frequent handwashing, we will continue to be responsible for the continued spread of this unseen attacker.
