Rwanda has always been ahead of its neighbours in terms of innovation and keeping up with the developed countries around the world.
The country has taken measures to ensure that the citizens are clean and taking good care of their hygiene.
The government has erected washbasins at bus stations to ensure travellers wash their hands before boarding the busses.
In a video shared by New Times Rwanda on social media, passengers at a Kigali bus park were seen washing their hands on the mobile sinks before travelling.
Many welcomed the directive as they cleaned up just as the Government had advised.
The country is yet to record any case of the deadly virus but believe better hygiene could help them minimize or avoid the risk of an outbreak.
So far nine countries have recorded coronavirus cases in Africa, with the total being at least 80 patients.
Countries such as Egypt, Algeria, Nigeria, South Africa, and Senegal are among those to have recorded more than one case.
Egypt is leading with cases rising up to 48 in the past few days.
The country also recorded the continent's first death due to the virus.
The patient was, however, a German tourist who was receiving treatment in the Northern Africa country for the virus, before succumbing to the disease.
