The time is now
COVID-19 is fighting and it is time you fight back! It’s been a total disruption to human activities since the outbreak of the Virus in December 2019. The disease which was first discovered in Wuhan, China has continued to ravage the world — hitting hard the strongest economies and advanced countries.
How else do we describe a Virus that is challenging humanity in over 200 countries than being a global pandemic? In all of this, one thing is certain, this world we live in will never be the same again.
The COVID-19 deaths
In Europe as at the morning (April the 9th), there were 700,000 cases and 61,000+ deaths.
Nigeria has recorded 6 COVID-19 deaths with over 270 cases and it is nowhere near the cases in Italy, Spain, UK, France, U.S, China and the rest — these countries have thousands of cases.
Italy has lost over 17,000 people including over 100 medical doctors to the pandemic that is reshaping the world with so much force and rapidly too. Over 88,000 humans have died of COVID-19 worldwide so far.
I have read of stories of how families are losing their loved ones, some their breadwinners. In a country like ours, we all can allude to the fact that we are largely responsible for what happens to our family in case life gets tough.
We should be mindful of the fact that we are a third world country; intervention may be overwhelming for the government in a time like this hence, it is important we fight back and smartly by preparing ahead to protect our families.
It is simple, take a life insurance policy today.
We are hopeful that soon, COVID-19 will become a thing of the past, but the world will never remain the same again. There will be a massive paradigm shift, and things will be done differently going forward.
What about you? This is the best time to fight back against Coronavirus. Are you ready?
How to fight back
The first line of defence is to ensure you wash your hands with soap and (preferably warm) water, or alcohol-based (at least 60% ethanol) hand sanitisers regularly, maintain social distancing (for those living in states where restriction of movement has been ordered, please comply).
World Health Organisation (WHO) rolled out preventive measures to our local authorities, but COVID-19 fight is every human’s fight. The tougher we fight, the faster the disease is curtailed.
If you have any symptoms such as Dry Cough, Hardness of Breath, Fever or a Sore Throat. Please contact Nigeria Centre for Disease Control on 080097000010.
