We have the internet to keep us connected…
Before the internet, isolation would have been extremely lonely.
But thanks to the advent of modern technology, it is easy to FaceTime & video call our loved ones and keep up with them on Social Media, making us feel much more connected then we otherwise would have.
Dr Shmerling said: “We currently have ways to practice social distancing that preserve at least some social and medical connections.
“People in isolation or quarantine can ask for help, visit friends, ‘see’ family and doctors virtually and provide updates on their condition.”
