Here are very important safety tips from iMart Nigeria we must all practice every single day to stop the spread of this deadly virus:
1) Always wash your hands with soap and water:

That way, whatever germs you might have returned with will be washed away before you proceed into your living room or bedroom and come in contact with other people and surfaces.
2) Always use your nose mask and stand 2 meters away from another in public places such as: ATM queue, Point Of Sales, stores and any other place with several people.
