Covid-19 Social Distance Awareness Simulation

The coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) spread worldwide during the first half of 2020. As is the case for all countries, Uganda, where the number of reported cases reached more than 40734 as of July 2021, was heavily affected by this pandemic. We developed a new simulation model to examine practically how social distancing affects the spread of covid-19 in a university setting. A video was made and distributed to the public through social media platforms packaged in an easily understandable, practical, and easily acceptable manner to enhance understanding of the concept to the general public, specifically targeting students in institutions of higher learning who had to continue studying while adhering to COVID 19 SOPs. Students from the Institute of Public Health and Management at Clarke International University took the lead in demonstrating practically how social distancing would help us overcome this novel pandemic.
