The covid-19 virus is highly contagious due to its long incubation period and asymptomatic transmission. Infected young people could carry the virus without showing mild or any symptoms. But the death rate for infected adults is more than 10x higher than seasonal flu, and currently there is no vaccine or specific anti-viral medicine for this strain of virus. Cutting down its routes of spreading (quarantine, social distancing and good personal hygiene) are the only effective measures to prevent an epidemic in our communities. 

Because the virus infection grows exponentially, a proactive preventative measure at the early stage of the breakout is most effective in protecting human lives and mitigating economic cost.
