There is no doubt that its a challenging time for all of us as we continue to get our lives back gradually. In all we must nor despair or give up on our beliefs and aspirations. We must be strong and seek to rebuild our lives back and forge ahead to the goals we all set for ourselves.
We must also continue to observe all the protocols laid down by the Federal and States Ministry of Health, Nigeria and also the Nigeria Center for Disease Control on strict observance of ways we can control and stem the tide of the deadly Coronavirus Covid19. The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is caused by a virus that spreads through droplets released when an infected person coughs or sneezes. A person can become infected with the virus by being in close contact (within 2 metres) of an infected person. Infection can also spread by touching a surface or object that an infected person coughed or sneezed on.
The following symptoms may develop within 14 days after exposure to COVID-19:
• Shortness of breath or difficulty in breathing
• Sore throat
• Body pain
• Recent loss of taste or smell
• Runny nose/catarrh
• Fatigue (tiredness)
Droplets (respiratory secretions) produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes can cause transmission of the virus particularly when there is close contact (less than 2 metres)
with an infected person. The risk increases the longer someone has close contact with an infected person. There are two routes by which people could become infected:
– Secretions can be directly transferred into the mouths or noses of people who are nearby (less than 2 metres)
– By touching a surface or object such as a doorknob that has been contaminated with respiratory secretions and then touching own mouth, nose, or eyes
