25 times animals were spotted practicing social distancing better than humans

If animals can do it, why can’t we?

COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who are in close contact for a prolonged period of time. Transmission happens when infected individuals cough, sneeze, or talk, and droplets from their mouths or noses are launched into the air and land in the mouths or noses of people near them. To avoid that, the CDC strongly recommends maintaining a minimum of 6 feet distance between individuals in public, while the WHO advises keeping at least 3 feet. Sadly, a lot of people don’t get this and deliberately go against the instruction of health authorities.

In an attempt to make those individuals come to their senses, several people from different parts of the world have taken to social media to share photos of animals observing social distancing way better than humans. Check out the pictures of these admirably disciplined animals in the list below.

Without any home to quarantine themselves indoors, seagulls seemingly make sure to practice social distancing wherever they are. In the photo above, the birds are seen perching on what appears to be river poles with equal distance from one another. While they collectively look like a line of watchmen guarding something, they’re more probably keeping their sights on their next prey.
