*ALERT: Second Wave of Covid-19 is here*
The resurgence of Covid-19 through the newly mutated form is ravaging our land, claiming many lives.
Unlike what we witnessed in the first wave, this one is even more easily transmitted and deadlier too. It is therefore imperative for everyone first and foremost, accept that Corvid-19 pandemic is not over and we must prepare to confront it all over again.
What we see on the streets, worship centres and social interactions, parties and daily activities call for concern.
In a period when the “enemy” has doubled back and is attacking us ferociously, we seem to be celebrating a false victory and denying the danger is still around us.
We need to observe all the basic rules we have been following all along and wake up to the present reality.
Shelve all forms of social engagements for now:
no parties, no churches, mosques, meetings, faaji etc. Tell yourself it is better to stay alive.
Wash your hands frequently and before you touch the face, eyes and mouth
Wear face mask obligatorily. (Most important)
Maintain a social distance of at least 6ft away from others where you must be with anyone.
Insist others wear their facemasks at work and everywhere you are.
Do not hold face-to-face meetings with others, go virtual for now. If you must, go outside and hold such meetings, socially distancing, in an open, well-ventilated space, with windows open, not in a closed space with airconditioners.
If you love your aged relations, insist on these tenets for now. Do not go visiting them until the pandemic goes away.
Let every family member know these facts and discuss them openly.
We have seen an upsurge in the number of people who keep treating “malaria” instead of going for the Covid test. Many such then start using all sorts of steam inhalation and home remedies for their cough and chest congestion. It is not helpful to do this, especially if you are also diabetic, hypertensive or with a number of other health baggages, or above the age of 60.
It may be rather late by the time you are breathless and are rushed to the hospital. Most of those dying delayed going to the hospital till very late.
Remember, let us do the work of staying safe before we pray that God should help us. Prayers alone, without the work, is futile.
Please Stay Safe.
