⚠📞 CORONA VIRUS AND OUR PHONES, ETC. 📞⚠
Are you aware that your phone can play host to pathogens?
👉It makes no sense if you wash your hands ten times in an hour and still pick up your phone with the same hand.
⚠You’ll still be at a high risk of getting infected, you know?
⚠You should also sanitize your smartphones frequently, with alcohol-based sanitizers and wipe down the back, front and sides of your device.
👉Same applies to your laptops too.
⚠This is going to be a long ride. You better be ready for it.
⚠If you’re still using a handkerchief, it’s time to STOP it. A handkerchief can play host to pathogens too.
⚠You should use a disposable wipe, instead. Wipe and dispose immediately.
👉Remember to fix your bank/ATM issues, if you got any.
👉This isn’t the time to say I don’t need an ATM card. See, you need it.
👉I tell you most solemnly, you need it.
👉Go get an active ATM card now.
⚠Stock up your home with foodstuffs, vitamin C, paracetamol, cough syrups, water, tissue paper, liquid soaps, hand sanitizers, drinks, disposable wipes, a clipper, toothpaste, disinfectants(spray), etc.
👉Make sure you have small money at home, even if it’s only 100k.
👉If you live in the urban regions like most of us, please send some money home for your people at home to stock up too.
👉We currently have 30 confirmed cases in Nigeria + one suspected case in Katsina state (sample has been taken and result is expected).
👉Chances are now 50/50 that the coming weeks will either be horrible or good.
👉We pray for things to greatly improve, at the same time, we have to prepare for the worse.
👉Always say a prayer and be close to your loved ones.
⚠If anyone visits home from the Abroad, don’t be in a haste to go see the person.😅
⚠ Advice them to self-isolate for 14 days.
⚠When you notice a suspected case, or see someone develop symptoms, don’t take the person to the church, herbalist, etc. Hospital is where they should visit.
Avoid large gathering of people.
