The world is currently in a state of war. A war without guns and bullets. A war without human soldiers. A war without borders. A war without sacred zones. However, with our collective efforts we shall win the war against COVID 19 if we adhere to personal hygiene, if we are obedient, disciplined and prayerful. Let us ‘stay safe’.
