The Federal Government of Nigeria has just eased the lockdown which the country has been into for almost four weeks as a result of covid-19. The majority have been so happy that the lockdown is finally eased but forget that the deadly coronavirus is still out there.
It is obvious that many people will troop out on May 4th because they can’t wait to get back to their daily activities. As a matter of fact, no one can stop them, so definitely everywhere will be crowded. But there are some things which must be done if you will go out.
Before going out on the 4th of May, see things you should know to avoid COVID-19 below;
#1. The first thing to do is to have in mind that coronavirus is out there and it can be contracted from anybody. By having it in mind, it will help you take every precaution. Don’t be among the people saying the virus is not real, because it is real. So, before stepping out in the morning, remember to pray to God for your safety and protection.
#2. It is true you have friends and you have missed them because you haven’t seen them in the past weeks, but don’t forget that social distancing is one of the ways of preventing the virus from spreading. Do not hug anybody, no handshake, and no familiarity.
#3. Always go out with your face mask as instructed by authorities. This is another way of protecting yourself from contracting COVID-19. No matter how hurry you are, do not forget it at home. It is also important to take your hand sanitizer with you.
#4. Remember that movement is allowed only from 6am – 8pm, be fast with everything you are going to do otherwise you might end up in a dialogue with the police, I’m sure you don’t want to be harassed.
#5. Stay at home if you feel you can work from home, and you are not among those required to resume work. It is safer for you at home than going out.
#6. Also, stay at home if you are a person who can not hold the fear of the virus. By going out, the fear of contracting or being exposed to the virus might take over your mind when you get back home. Do not forget that your mental health is so important.
Stay safe and always remember the descriptives being declared by the World Health Organization (WHO). Coronavirus is real and it is dangerous. Prevention is better than cure. May God help us all.
