The population density of Stony Brook is 2,314 per sq mi which is 460% higher than the New York average and 2455% higher than the national average.The population density is overwhelmingly high even when we disregard the commuters pouring from other boroughs as well as surrounding areas. While second case of Covid-19 is confirmed as of this morning, we should finally take this pandemic seriously.

There is no way to avoid crowd in Long Island . Thousands of people from NYC to Long Island. The LIRR is taking extra measures to clean parts of its system will not be helpful when there are thousands traveling via this system every single day. As we all know, Covid-19 has an incubation period of 14-20 days. Sometimes virus carriers will not show symptoms while still being contagious. According to WHO's newest data, this disease has a death rate of 3.4%. The common flu in the U.S. from Oct.19 - Feb.20 that killed 18,000-46,000 people has a death rate of 0.05%-0.1%. Yes, this is NOT JUST A FLU.

Please sign the petition. As students of Stony Brook University, we should put our personal health and our close family's well-being in the first place. Actions should be taken before crisis not after. So far CDC has not been reliable in this critical situation. Self-isolation has been proven to be the best way of preventing the spreading of virus. It is up to us to protect ourselves.
