As the world implements quarantines and social distancing measures, some people are wondering how much help this actually provides. A new study done in Singapore has shown that the measures currently being taken, such as school closings and working from home, truly does slow the spread of the virus. The study showed that the most effective measure included quarantine plus workplace distancing and closings. All scenarios that involved some kind of social distancing also had better results than no intervention. The study also examined how well isolation of sick patients works in preventing the spread of the virus to family members or health care workers.
