On the top of your prayers, wash your hands on habitual basis.
Washing your hands saves your life and others’. Normally, your hands are carriers of contagious germs and diseases. Now, given the outbreak of Coronavirus, known and unknown pandemics, it is vitally important to take the necessary health precautions.
Use soap and hand disinfectants. Limit hand-shaking and employ alternative ways of greeting people. For Muslims, ASC is enough for greeting people. When possible, use face-masks in crowded places. Stockpile these items at home and advise family members to use them extensively. Wash clothes and change them as often as you can. Health experts say Coronavirus can stay 9 hours on the cloth. Persons coming from overseas are more likely to carry the disease. They should be screened at entry points for fever and symptoms of the virus infection.
Those handling food and other service in hotels and restaurants should be instructed to use soaps, disinfectants and gloves. There is also a right way to wash hands with thorough cleaning and rinsing of hands after lathering up them completely with soap. Please stay healthy.
Finally, don’t be fooled by unscientific romours that Coronavirus doesn’t affect Muslims. Human bodies are all biologically the same and susceptible to diseases and contamination.
