Dr. Sani Aliyu, National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF), has revealed that most Nigerians including those in south eastern part does not believe in the deadly Corona Virus pandemic.
Aliyu also said that those believing that the pandemic is 60% scam is risking their lives.
“There’s also significant disbelief in the danger and impact of COVID-19, in parts of the southeast where we did a recent survey, 60 per cent did not believe that COVID-19 was an issue at all. We clearly are not taking the pandemic seriously enough,” he said.
The coordinator also lamented that many people only wear their face mask either to avoid being harassed by security agents, or when they are compelled to do so.
“There’s partial to total non-compliance with face mask and physical distance in protocols by the public as earlier mentioned by the DG NCDC,” he said.
