Infectious diseases have been spread incredibly rapidly for thousands of years, and though globalization connects the world on an economic and social basis, the in-person, intimate contact required for contraction of disease has not increased because of globalization. There is no evidence to suggest that advancement in industry and technology on the scale of social media serves as a disadvantage. Social media has actually helped spread awareness about the coronavirus very rapidly, so that people can quickly understand the risks and stay socially isolated from one another. In this way, one could say that globalization has actually helped the slow of infectious disease. Increased migration also offers no evidential correlation to spread of disease, and most who enter new countries are given shots and vaccines for foreign diseases upon their arrival. Based on the arguments, globalization has not increase the rapidity of the spread of disease.
