“Now I know these measures are not easy especially at Christmas time but we all need to do our part if we are to win this battle with this pandemic. Like the rest of the world we too are hoping that a vaccine.  I have been in isolation for days now. It is not easy to be separated from my family. This s just one of the consequence of catching the virus but I am lucky. See, I am asymptomatic but I have friends and colleagues who are not. I know of people who have suffered greatly and I know people who have died. We have to take this seriously but we can also learn lessons. Those who exercise regularly and try to eat healthy fear better than those who don’t. Let us try to live healthier lifestyles and let us all care for each other. I continue to work from my bathroom where my isolation continue until the doctor say include working from home whenever  possible and keeping up with the three important practices of wearing a facemask in public, frequent hand washing and six feet physical distancing. Together we can win this war against COVID-19. I know we can and we will.”
