    People in this city swarm around each other

    Hello

    Imagine, in a city, people always spend so much time in streets and in markets around each other and in large groups. I mean large number of people spend a lot of time in close physical proximity. Can I use "swarm around" to describe that situation?


    In this city, people are very sociable and they are always swarming around each other and that is one the reasons this virus has spread too fast here.

    My feeling is that "swarm around" does not work.

    What should I use?

    I need a sentence whose subject is "people".

    But if you have other suggestions, that is fine. Thanks.

    Can "swarm around" be used in this context at all?
