This stuff looks so real now and I cannot but mention a few things about the whole predicament. Why now? What’s happening? Is the world coming to an end? Has God forsaken us? These and many more are questions that pop up daily as we try our best to stay calm. There are a few lessons to pick from what’s happening in the world now (Corona Virus) and I’d like to share with you all.
Who else has noticed this Virus is no respecter of persons? The Rich, the Poor, the Old and the Young are affected by it. This points out one plausible point: Money, Reputation or Age do not always exempt people. God is the only supreme being and I’m certain one way or the other, we acknowledge this.
Here’s the time to come back to God. Yeah! Come back home!! A lot of activities have been suspended, what next? We are saddled with numerous activities every day and this has made us stay away from our Maker. Maybe COVID-19 will make us remember there’s a God who heals and makes people whole. It’s time for the universe to lift up their voices to Him, He listens, He’d heal our land.
I’d like to mention that we should not panic, let’s help others by helping ourselves. Clean up and remain sensitive.
Here are a few tips from The American Red Cross:
• Stay home if you can and avoid gatherings of more than ten people.
• Practice social distancing by keeping a distance of about six feet from others if you must go out in public.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
• Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing; throw used tissues in the trash. If a tissue isn’t available, cough or sneeze into your elbow or sleeve, not your hands.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, computers, phones, keyboards, sinks, toilets, faucets and countertops.
• If surfaces are dirty, clean them – use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
Have a great day guys.
