Social distancing vs Physical distancingWe have been hearing "Social distancing " since the break out of covid 19. We are reminded to keep social distancing from other people because we don't know who are we coming in contact with may be infected with this virus. Being sceptical in this regard and keeping onself staying away from others is not wrong at all. But this term Social Distancing is incorrect in itself. It implies negative connotation. Entire world society is divided into different segments based on money, power, colour, language, region, religion, culture, ethnicity, developmental aspect etc. There is clear demarcation between superior and inferior, powerful and weak, developed and developing, developing and underdeveloped, forward and backward, one religion vs another religion and the list goes on.
Based on different factors one superior group keeps social distancing from inferior group. They are hesitant to free mixing. Do we not observe and experience that upper class of our society keeps a social distancing from lower class?
This social distancing creates division between the people. I think correct word is "Physical distancing" and staying away from each other to protect ourselves from getting infected of cornovurus.
