Hold the line

quote [ You should perceive your entire family to function as a single individual unit; if one person puts themselves at risk, everyone in the unit is at risk. [?] If your son visits his girlfriend, and you later sneak over for coffee with a neighbor, your neighbor is now connected to the infected office worker that your son?s girlfriend?s mother shook hands with. [?] This is not a joke or a hypothetical. ]

Ack, Medium! But helpful advice to pondering parents.

Why is the government relying on nudge theory to fight coronavirus?

quote [ With an estimated 5,000 to 10,000 coronavirus cases now present in the UK, the government has eschewed social distancing measures such as closing schools and banning large sporting events. Instead, it has opted for behavioural ?nudges?: wash your hands, don?t touch your face, don?t shake hands with others, stay at home if you feel ill, and self-isolate if you have a continuous cough. ]

"Nudge nudge"
