Everyone around the globe continues to learn on how to battle with the global pandemic of Covid-19. Due to the continued surge in the number of covid 19 infections, a national lockdown continued in some Counties as per the government directives. Among many measures imposed, some policies regulated stated a limited number of worshippers in attendance during congregational gatherings and curfew timings from 10.00pm to 4.00am also had to be observed across the Country. This made it difficult for many activities to be conducted throughout the holy month.
