Novel Coronavirus is a highly infectious disease, with over one million confirmed cases and thousands of deaths recorded . The disease has become pandemic, affecting almost all nations of the world, and has caused enormous economic, social and psychological burden on countries . Hygiene and educational campaign programmes have been identified to be potent public health interventions that can curtail the spread of the highly infectious disease . In order to verify this claim quantitatively, we propose and analyze a non-linear mathematical model to investigate the effect of healthy sanitation and awareness on the transmission dynamics of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) prevalence . Rigorous stability analysis of the model equilibrium points was performed to ascertain the basic reproduction number R 0, a threshold that determines whether or not a disease dies out of the population . Our model assumes that education on the disease transmission and prevention induce behavioral changes in individuals to imbibe good hygiene, thereby reducing the basic reproduction number and disease burden . Numerical simulations are carried out using real life data to support the analytic results.
