Corona Virus also known as COVID-19 has become the world’s worst enemy with several cases confirmed and deaths reported.

As at 8 April, 2020, over 1,431,533 cases of COVID-19 (in accordance with the applied case definitions and testing strategies in the affected countries) have been reported, including 82,058 deaths.

The virus began in Wuhan, a town in China and has since found its way into different countries of the world with countries like Italy, Spain and China being the worst hit territories.

Corona Virus like a tourist committed to its mission has registered its mark on every continent of the world. Governments, organizations and people are scared of the effects of fatality caused by the virus. The whole Earth is tensed.

But what if you were told that Corona virus is just a minor case compared to a virus experts say kills faster than the deadly Covid-19. This virus is FEAR.

According to reports, some people may develop other deadly illnesses as a result of the fear of Corona virus. Others with existing health conditions may become worse.

While we appreciate the importance of the Internet and social media platforms for disseminating useful information, we won’t turn blind eyes to the several messages that many people are exposed to, which instills fear into their minds.

Fear has pushed so many to take up non-recommended measures or treatment to combat the virus, which caused more harm than good.

For you to pull through this crisis successfully, you first have to know that it is an individual as well as a collective war. Hence, you must deliberately stay alive while you also help others around to stay safe.

What you need to do:

• Tell yourself this is a phase and it shall pass.
• Avoid fake news more than you avoid the virus. Don’t be deceived. Ensure to verify any information before accepting its validity.
•. Comply strictly to the precautionary measures such as washing of hands with soap and water, staying at home, sneezing into a tissue and disposing immediately, maintaining social distance, don’t shake hands or hug and maintain good personal hygiene.
• Adhere strictly to the laws given by the country/state in which you reside.
• While you stay home, feed on the right information, engage in fruitful activities and prepare for life after the pandemic.
• Remember that while people die from this monster virus, more people are recovering daily. According to reports, about 302,140 have recovered so far. So, finally, pray for the recovery of the sick.
