Staying at Home for the Greater Good

The COVID-19 pandemic is the defining global health crisis of our time and the greatest challenge we have faced in a long time. Since its emergence in Asia late last year, the virus has spread to every continent except Antarctica. Cases are rising daily in Africa, America, and Europe. Countries are racing to slow the spread of the virus by testing and treating patients, carrying out contact tracing, limiting travel, quarantining citizens, and cancelling large gatherings such as sporting events, concerts, and schools.
The outbreak of coronavirus disease has been declared a public health emergency of international concern; therefore, it is important for everyone to take precautionary measures to protect ourselves and loved ones from coronavirus.
The world has recorded a total of 1,365,004 confirmed cases of corona virus and 76,507 deaths as at 7th April 2020. Here in Nigeria, new cases of coronavirus are reported every day and has currently spread across 15 states.
Every individual has a role to play to help stop the spread of the virus. We can heal the world by doing the right thing. And the right thing to do at this time is to stay at home and be safe because at the moment there is no vaccine to prevent a person from getting infected and there is no cure yet, although a series of clinical trials are being carried out but there is no approved treatment for the disease at the moment. Therefore, the importance of staying at home cannot be overemphasised, stay at home in order to reduce the chances of contracting or spreading the virus. If more people abide by this, then there is a high probability that we will be able to stop the spread and properly manage the number of confirmed cases.
Stay at home if you have no reason being outside, you can save lives by staying at home. Let us all play our parts.
