It is proven through different various studies that social distancing and staying at home is the best proven way to flatten the curve and reduce the number of infections.

Filipinos in my country, uses internet a lot. Most of them are even very keen on sharing information in Social Media, reminding everyone to stay at home and practice social distancing. 

Through my idea, if people are aware of how many people are outside, how many are exposed to the risks, then maybe it will give them a second thought to stay at home and encourage everyone that others should do the same too!
