It's not because of the coronavirus that he hides his nose. The little boy in the photo tears his shirt to find a piece to use as a mask. We are at the beginning of the dry season in Nyarugusu. And it is the most occasional period for diseases caused by dust. 

We noticed this youngster with a sort of handkerchief on his nose. We asked if the boy was wearing this to escape from the Covid-19, they told us that it was not the cause, he was wearing it because he had just swept. Wearing a mask is always important to protect yourself more, the coronavirus will leave but the dust from May to September each year forces us to wear a mask.
