Cleanliness they say, is next to godliness. One of the responsibilities that the previlege of growing up entails is that of maintaining good hygiene. Indeed the formation of positive health habits is of great essence to the world at this trying period of Corona virus.

It takes great effort to maintain cleanliness but it is always better to prevent than to cure. Many have actually recovered from the covid-19 pandemic and many have equally died. So it is better since we can, to prevent be infected than to hope for recovery. Personal hygiene is still the only way even while in isolation. You can quarantine yourself from people but definitely not from dirt. Hence the need for personal hygiene.

As a way of fostering better hygiene, experts have recommended regular showers with soap, warm water and clean flannels. Constant application of hand sanitizers and the wearing of nose masks.

This helps in reducing the penetration of germs, excess greese from skin, preventing body odour and improving one's look.

Covid-19 is actually a respiratory disease, this is why we must mind the atmosphere we live in, the air we breath and the liquid that we allow into our body openings.

Should must not sit comfortably with someone that is coughing, sneezing or spitting. Social distancing and use of nose masks is therefore very important.

We must clean our environment clean, sanitize regularly all surfaces like door handle, hand rails and our hands.

Wash your hands as often as possible. Avoid touching unnecessarily your mouth, nostrils, ears and face.

Lastly, wear neat clothes and avoid repeating unwashed clothes.

God help us as we do our best. Amen.
