Both Peace and Nuba are starting to feel the weight of the stringent measures taken by the United Kingdom and Australia to avert the pandemic.

As Coronavirus continues to ravage the world, countries, institutions and families are doing everything within their means to protect their loved ones.

For National Insurance Corporation (NIC), it has called for routine checks over two of their former employees and current She Cranes stars Peace Proscovia and Mary Nuba.

"We have had to monitor them because it is in the interest of NIC that these players' future is bright and that what they set out to achieve in England and Australia improves their lives so that they become better and responsible human to themselves and their families," She Cranes manager and NIC Marketing Director Jocelyn Ucanda stated Monday.

Since the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the COVID-19 viral disease a pandemic, Ucanda has been in constant touch with Peace, who turns out for Australia netball giants Sunshine Coast Lightning and Nuba, who has fast established herself at England-based club Loughborough Lightning.

"For us it's important that they are healthy, they are fit and able to complete their studies and carry on with their netball assignments.

So, it's in my interest to keep checking on them, give them the moral support and continue guiding them," she added.

Both Peace and Nuba are starting to feel the weight of the stringent measures taken by the United Kingdom and Australia to avert the pandemic.

England and Australia Netball have suspended activity across all levels of the game, in light of their governments' new guidelines on coronavirus.

"It's a challenge because everyone isn't used to this at all. Games, training and studies have been paused. But I have managed to do home workouts, runs on the road and online studies," Nuba told New Vision.

In Australia, Peace feels safe. "Everything is under control and our club is taking all the precautions to keep us safe. We are still training and not yet in lockdown, apart from the borders that closed. We were given a car by Nissan so we use it for travelling around," she pointed.
