The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is a great concern in the global health sector. This isdueto the large number of people infected within a wide area. The possibility of transmission from one person to anotherraises the need for isolation or restrictions in terms of physical and social interactions within the community. This study aims to determine the extent of community compliance in conducting Physical Distancing.
The research design was observational analytic, using cross sectional method,and was performed with 753 respondents. In addition, data was collected using internet-based questionnaire in the first Government Emergency Response period from March 23 to April 11, 2020. The information obtained includes demographics, physical social compliance variables and risk level. Therefore, qualitativeanalysis was performed to evaluate the frequency distribution, while the relationship between risk categories with Covid 19 cases was determined using chi square.
The results showed the majority of respondents performedoutdoor activities (60.4%), althoughwith good health protocol awareness. Also, mostparticipants wear masks (75.6%), conductgoodhand washing habit (86.6%), always use hand sanitizers (76.5) and maintain a distance from others (87%). Furthermore, the risk categories of respondents were low (95.2%),hence a relationship is established between Covid 19 cases and risk categories.This is reflectedin physical and social distancing compliance (p <0.00001),classified in the moderate category,with an odd ratio value of 9.42 (CI: 4.45-19.97).
In conclusion, moderate physical and social distancing compliance poses a greater risk for covid19 cases, thus the need to increase discipline with Large Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) implementation.

European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine, 2020, Volume 7, Issue 7, Pages 5576-5581

To show that six common mistakes in initiatives to improve conduct hindered the application of psychological and sociological empirical evidence; to propose a novel method that integrates existing behavioural research trends. The role of health actions in the root of the global non-communicable disease outbreak has been seen to contribute to attempts to alter conduct. It should be remembered that most attempts to improve health habits have been quite effective. This paper argues that debates on behaviour change in political decision-making contain six widespread mistakes, and that these errors have made the business of behaviour change far more complicated than appropriate. Overview on strategies and procedures that improve behaviour. The explanations why awareness and knowledge of actions have changed too far in the prevention of tobacco, food and physical inactivity disorders are considered and an alternate solution is introduced. This model takes advantage of emerging advances in behavioural research. The previous psychological and sociological situations must be recognized and psychological theories about the automated and reflective processes should be coupled with sociological ideas on social practice.

The motive behind the study was to compare selected physiological and physical fitness parameters between short distance swimmers and sprinters. The study was carried out in 20 males, 10 swimmers and 10 athletes from Degree College of Physical Education (HVPM) Amravati between the age group of 18-25yrs. The selected variables were examined statistically by applying independent t-test. In conclusion the study showed that there was significance difference observed in vital capacity, flexibility, maximum strength, cardiovascular endurance and in thigh fat % but insignificance difference observed in resting pulse rate, SPO2 and in abdomen and biceps fat %. Swimmers have shown significantly less flexibility as compared to sprinters, so the researchers suggested focusing on flexibility during training for better performance.
