Social distancing (SD) has been promoted by countries around the world as an effective way to stop the transmission chain. Recently, the word physical distancing is promoted in place of SD, as people are encouraged to connect with each other on a social platform. The term SD although introduced in 21st century, its implication dates back to 5th century BC. The Book of Leviticus in Bible contains the earliest reference for social distancing.
