Social distancing is one of the most effective social distancing strategies in history, according to a study published this week by the New York Times.
The study, which looked at more than 30 countries, found that in countries with strong social distanced laws, there was an 80 percent reduction in the number of suicides by people aged 25 to 54.
It also found that the percentage of suicides related to social distances was lower in countries where the laws were relaxed than in those with strict laws.
The findings highlight the need to keep people safe while reducing the incidence of suicide.

The study, titled Social Distancing, Suicide, and the Welfare State in Countries: Evidence from Switzerland, Australia, Canada, and United Kingdom, was conducted by the University of Zurich and published on Friday.
It examined the effectiveness of social distancers laws in preventing suicide and found that they reduced the rate of suicide by 65 percent and reduced the risk of death by 44 percent, compared to countries where people had to take the time to distance themselves from others.
“The results indicate that social distancer laws can reduce the risk to prevent suicide by an average of 40 percent, but that social distance alone cannot prevent suicides,” the study said.
“If we want to reduce the number and the rate, we must continue to address other social distributive mechanisms such as the availability of safe public spaces and a lack of social distance.”
The authors of the study added that the laws in Switzerland, Britain, and other countries that have strong social distance laws may be the result of a lack for “social justice” in the countries they are enforced in.
“These laws are a tool of social justice, but they also create barriers that hinder the availability and use of safe spaces, and they also increase the social distance between those who use the spaces and those who do not,” the authors said.
In Switzerland, Switzerland’s social distance law, the Fassung, was enacted in 2012.
In Australia, the government recently introduced a similar law, requiring people to be in a safe place to avoid a suicide.
In Canada, the Canadian Social Distances Law, enacted in 2018, states that people are not required to distance their faces from others while using a public place.
This law has been criticized by some for its lax enforcement and a decrease in social distantings laws in the United States, where it has been implemented in cities such as Philadelphia and Seattle.
In Britain, the Scottish Parliament recently passed a similar bill, which will become law next month.
In Canada, Canada’s social distancings law was also recently amended in 2018 to allow for “the right to social distance” while in a public space, and in the U.K. this year, a similar version of the law was introduced.
The U.S. is considering similar legislation in Congress.
