TAMPA FL –The COVID-19 pandemic gains force daily because people do not practice basic safety precautions. The holiday season and upcoming months may be a public health disaster of tragic proportions because of what Americans do, or, rather, what they will not do.
“December, January and early February are going to be terribly painful months,” according to Dr. Anthony Fauci of CDC. When asked if he thought Americans would change their behavior, his assessment was soberly pessimistic: “I don’t think they are.”
People need to change what they DO. Now there is a behavioral solution to address this problem, and a local start-up is offering it to the public free of charge.
PerfectCoaches®changes behavior. Designed as a workforce development app featuring a virtual coach who converses with users, PerfectCoaches has created a new solution called Defensive Distancing™ to address the challenges of COVID 19.
Defensive Distancing is a habit consisting of three things we all know are important: wear a mask, keep 6 feet from others, wash your hands. The virtual coach interacts with users so they learn the habit and practice defensive distancing all day every day. The app also lets users post their success stories to their social media accounts.
