Across the world, health officials have instructed the public to stay home, avoid crowds, and refrain from touching one another. But are we following through? Experts have called social distancing as one of the most important steps you can take to reduce the transmission of easily communicable diseases like COVID-19, which is transmitted through infective respiratory droplets. With the help of social distancing, people around the world are trying to “flattening the curve” of this ongoing coronavirus pandemic. But, while humans are still trying to get used to ‘new normal’, animals are showing them how it’s done! Here are some pictures that show animals following social distancing guidelines much better than us.

What Can We Learn From These Animals?

Social distancing has made a major impact on our lives but spending so much time at home has both disadvantages and benefits. It has allowed us to slow down, and enjoy small things and improve bonds with our friends and family. But, it’s also a tough time for many and we could all use a little humour in our lives. Animals have always been great mood-lifters. But these animals following social distancing also teaches us something. If they can do it so well, then what’s stopping some us from following it? It’s something to think about, right?
