So far no cure for Coronavirus has been found, using only the treatment of the symptoms of the pandemic, until the human body builds up its immunity, and the virus infects the bloodstream disappear.

Coronavirus symptoms include coughing, flu, and difficulty breathing. It is transmitted through the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract.

To avoid this, Rwandans are required to abide by government regulations, especially by washing their hands frequently with water and soap, wearing masks when a person leaves home or meets many people in a village or a multi-family area.
