Special Issue on COVID-19: Social Distancing and Human Behavior

Social distancing is simply defined as keeping a distance of at least six feet from other people outside of your home to minimize the spread of diseases. It also implies avoiding crowded places, and not having group meetings to forestall mass infection of a disease from one person to another. Social distancing has been in the news recently, and become part of our daily living because of the novel global pandemic called COVID-19. Given the inevitability of human interactions, our personal and collective human behavior and wellness are affected by our social transactions. Undoubtedly, social distancing has affected our lives and the broad spectrum of human behavior in our different social environment.
