“Health protocols in public places must prioritize their visitors’ health. They include wearing of masks, washing one’s hands with water and soap, social distancing, and improving one’s immunity through healthy habits,” he said.

“The risk from people going to and fro, or converging in public raised the possibility of Covid-19 transmission. The public should adapt to these new realities so as to be more productive and avoid Covid-19 infection.”
