  1. Ensure that all health workers are first in line to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
  2. Ensure that all allowances and salaries are paid and that health workers are adequately compensated for their work.
  3. Provide quality equipment and facilities necessary to effectively carry out their work.
  4. Ensure sufficient supply of PPEs and other protective equipment needed to stay safe as they do their job.
  5. Like the Governor of Yobe state did recently, recognise their sacrifices and celebrate them.
  6. If you know any health workers personally, do something personal for them to show how much you appreciate their sacrifice.
  7. Stay home as much as you can and if you must go out, follow official guidelines and advisories to protect yourself and your family, community and state.
