Just stay at home.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) has identified 11 COVID-19 red zones in the country.

Posting on their social media accounts, MOH said that the spread of COVID-19 was more apparent in the red zones with a minimum of 41 cases recorded.

"Those of you who are located in these districts must step up your prevention measures.

"Remember that staying at home can break the COVID-19 infection chain," said MOH.

They added that it would be best to just stay indoors for your own good.

"Stay at home for the health of your mother, father, small children and even your grandparents," they said.


How to stop the spread

If you don't already know, here are the prevention measures to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Maintain social distancing. Keep at least one metre away from anyone who is coughing or sneezing as it reduces the risk of you breathing in droplets from a person who has COVID-19.

Try not to touch your eyes, nose and mouth as your hands tend to come in contact with many surfaces and has a higher chance of picking up viruses. 

Follow good respiratory hygiene. Good practices include covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough and sneeze and disposing of that tissue IMMEDIATELY.

Practice self-isolation if you are feeling unwell. If you have a fever, are coughing and have difficulty breathing, get medical help.  

Keep up to date with COVID-19 related reports. Understand where the high-risk areas are and avoid travelling there. You should take extra precautions if you are an elderly person or have diabetes or heart or lung disease. 

Stay at home. Staying at home reduces your exposure to other people and places and thus helps stop the chain of infection.

We can do this people! Another few weeks of practicing all these measures and the numbers may finally go down.
