Nigeria and several countries in Africa, Europe have gradually been easing pandemic restrictions. However, there is one thing we should still adhere to, which is crucial hygiene and safety measures in order to stay healthy and safeguard the health of those around us.
As countries around the world race to ensure that their populations are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, some have already started to ease certain restrictions related to the pandemic.
In Nigeria for instance, the Nigeria Centers for Disease Control (NCDC) have annouced that fully vaccinated individuals may now go to most places without having to wear a face covering.
Many of us have been looking forward to meeting up with friends and family in person, going to restaurants, attending events, and traveling again. However, even as restrictions may ease in some regions or for those who have had their COVID-19 vaccines, adhering to strict hygiene practices remains important.
Although vaccines are effectiveTrusted Source in preventing COVID-19 and possibly reducing the risk of spreading SARS-CoV-2, it remains unclear how long they are effective for and just how much they reduce the risk of further transmission.
These are some of the reasons that maintaining caution as we navigate a world with fewer restrictions will be helpful in ensuring the further easing of those regulations.
