60% of people in Southeast don’t believe in COVID-19 – PTF

Sani Aliyu, the national coordinator for the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has said that 60% of people in the Southeast don’t believe in COVID-19.

Aliyu made this known while speaking at the daily press briefing by the PTF in Abuja on Monday.

He said, ”Nigerians have continued to show persistent and remarkable lack of compliance to COVID19 prevention protocols which is quite worrying. .

“In the cities where the adherence to these protocols were high in the initial two weeks of the ease lockdown, progressively over time, citizens are letting down their guards and this remains of great concern. There is partial to total non-compliance to face mask and physical distancing protocols by the public. Many Nigerians only use their facemask either to avoid security agents or where they are told to do so.

“There is also significant disbelief in the danger and impact of COVID19. In parts of the South East where we did a survey, 60% did not believe that COVID was an issue at all.

“We clearly are not taking the pandemic seriously enough.” he said.
