By Modupe Gbadeyanka A campaign to help curb the spread of the global pandemic, coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has been launched by the Lagos State Government in collaboration with Jumia Nigeria. The contest is tagged #MyHandsAreSafe campaign and it is aimed at encouraging regular washing of hands which is a very potent tool in the fight to contain the spread of COVID-19. It was gathered that the campaign started on Monday, March 30, 2020 and residents of the city have been encouraged to participate in the online competition. According to the Chairwoman of Jumia Nigeria, Ms Juliet Anammah, \u201cJumia is very happy to leverage our online ecosystem to collaborate with Lagos State in this challenge and we enjoin all Lagosians to participate.\u201d \u201cWashing our hands is at least one thing we can all do to support our Government and our healthcare workers who are at the frontline,\u201d she added. Also speaking on the initiative, the Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on the Sustainable Development Goals and Investment, Mrs Solape Hammond, stated that the handwashing challenge will not only teach Nigerians in general and Lagos State residents in particular the right way to wash their hands as advised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and encouraged by the state government and health authorities, but will also encourage them to imbibe the habit so as to stay safe of Coronavirus. \u201cIn this instance, Prevention is not only better than cure - it\u2019s all we have at the moment. \u201cThe #MyHandsAreSafe challenge is a deliberate effort to use an online viral challenge towards minimising the spread of the disease,\u201d she said. \u201cNevermore have SDG3 (Health and Well-being) and SDG6 (Clean water and sanitation) been so important,\u201d the Governor\u2019s aide further said.
