Self quarantine or self isolation means staying at home in an isolated place to reduce the risk of spreading the infection, virus, and bacteria to the rest of the people.
Self-quarantine or self-isolation is a strategy used by public health officials to monitor and control the further spread of an infection such as the coronavirus COVD 19.
Self quarantine aims at spreading the disease causing pathogens to new communities. It encompasses discouraging festivals, gathering, social interactions and other forms of gatherings like funerals.
For the case of coronavirus, a patient is advised to self quarantine or self isolate for 14days
