Safety first before you exercise your faith.
Please don’t self medicate when you feel any symptoms, get medical help.

It is important to note that this is coming days after so many churches in Nigeria opened for service on Sunday despite the government warning against this.
Equally important, Nigeria has conducted only a total of 178 tests nearly one month after its first confirmed case.
Also, the Bauchi State government has confirmed another case of coronavirus, bringing the number of cases in the state to two.
State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Aliyu Maigoro, announced this during a press conference on Thursday. According to Maigoro, the first case is Governor Bala Mohammed while the second case is a 62-year-old male and a close friend of the governor.
Maigoro explained that 48 samples were taken for test and two have been confirmed positive.
The commissioner added that 37 others returned negative while the results of nine samples were still pending.
He noted that the State Ministry of Health has since begun the contact tracing of the second case.
Nigeria has been battling to rein in the dreaded coronavirus since its entry.
