MIN. OF HEALTH INST> COV19

OFFICIAL - for strict compliance until further notice.

If you feel a sudden unease

And an overwhelming need to sneeze,

Speedily settle the matter at issue

By sticking your nose into a tissue.

Then throw it away and understand

It's vital to vigorously scrub each hand.

Steer clear of germ and acquaintance alike

And tell this virus "On yer bike!"

Times do not always change that much.
Years ago, the noted US lyricist Irving ("Swannee") Caesar was
approached by a children's educational agency to write health oriented lines for kids. He resisted at first but then went ahead,
including emphasis in rhyme about washing hands. In later years,
he spoke of it proudly as one of his most worthwhile achievements.
Nowadays, a famous song of his - "Tea For Two" - seems very
relevant too!! 😐

We of a certain age have tended to disagree with parents who wrap their kids in cotton wool...but now we're doing it to ourselves. The irony!
