Here are few things you can do
Now that Coronavirus is in Nigeria,
One simple thing you can do for yourself if you want to stay alive,

AVOID crowded places as much as possible. The virus will spread very easily in buses, markets, clubs, and anywhere too many people gather.

If you can,
Please just avoid it.

Now that Coronavirus is in Nigeria,

IF you do NOT have a hand sanitiser,
Wash your hands ALWAYS at these times:

Before/after cooking and eating,
Before/after using the toilet,
Before/after touching animals,
Before/after touching a sick person,
Before/after sneezing or coughing.

Incase it is hard to wash your hands always,

Get a personal hand sanitiser.

Use it after you use the toilet,
Use it before/after you cook/eat,
Use it after you sneeze/cough,
Use it after you touch any public surfaces like door knobs, office tables etc

When you sneeze,
Do NOT use a handkerchief.
Please use a tissue and discard ASAP.

And if someone around you sneezes,
Advise them also to use a tissue.
And stay some distance from them.

That’s because re-using the same handkerchief to sneeze can potentially spread many viruses.

If you or someone you know, maybe family or friend, has some medications they use regularly- please buy enough supply for at least 4weeks.
Especially if it is life saving medication.

We hope for the best,
But if things go upside down,
You must be prepared to stay home for weeks.

In the same way,
If you can afford it, buy enough food for yourselves and your family.

No need to panic-buy food,
But make sure that your store has enough food IF it happens that everyone needs to stay at home for up to 4weeks.

Obviously don’t buy things that can spoil easily.

If you work in a bank, market, school, or a company/office, where you are exposed to a lot of people on a daily basis:

Don’t stand too close to anyone.
Give them a 2meter gap.

Use hand sanitiser (or wash your hands) as often as you can.
Stay away from anybody sneezing/coughing.

Now we must rally together as a country and fight this virus.

We have done it before.
We can do it again.
