Is wearing the Mask due to coronavirus still important?

Despite threats of the new variant of Coronavirus and rise in infection and death in Nigeria according to the Presidential Task Force on Covid 19, the use of mask accross the country and usual social distancing and washing of hand is no longer being followed by overwhelming majority of the public. It has gone so bad that when people see one wearing mask they see you as being alarmist.

Some people carry mask around but not to wear it but use it to enter government offices where it is mandatory to wear a mask, at least around your chin. You can pull it off when you get inside. Places like banks and some super markets around Abuja insist on wearing mask before going on or putting it on your chin. Just have a mask.

When you watch the President Task Force on Covid 19 giving their briefing on television you almost panick and thing they are taking this whole Coronavirus pandemic seriously, especially with the alarming stories of new variants and alarming stories coming from some other parts of the world, they are really not taking anything serious as they sound when they address the media.

Just go around any city, town and vIllage across Nigeria and you will wonder at the level of nonchalance by the people and the government pertaining Covid 19.

NEWISSUES went around Abuja and discovered that many people are not even aware of the new variant, don’t care, and some don’t believe, preferring to believe in conspiracy theory. Many also said they wouldn’t take the vaccine.

The Presidential Task Force on Covid 19 are doing a terrible job.
