Our Nigerian beliefs coupled with our poor lifestyle and disobedience to the social distancing order are some of the contributing factors that could spike up the spread of the pandemic.
In Lagos, the popular mode of public transportation known as Danfo can perfectly be described as a harbinger of Coronavirus as passengers are nearly loaded up to the roof of the vehicle still at exorbitant prices. No one asks questions.
To be on the safe side, you're advised to avoid these three places or if you must visit there, make sure you wear your face mask or face shield and strictly observe regular hand washing.
Bars and Restaurants
In Lagos for instance especially areas like Ikorodu and Lagos Island, people gather without necessarily been wary that Covid-19 is a problem. In Ikorodu, restaurants no longer observe the 6 feet spacing, and people sit as they like while waiting for their food. Face mask is only worn on the cheeks while several people stay in a small and poor ventilated restaurant room as no public health recommendations are been followed. Lagos Island is another red point especially Idumota, Balogun, Jankara and environs. Residents of these areas as well businesses care less about Covid-19 and associated health risks.
Churches and Mosques
Churches and Mosques incorporate many of the practices that experts believe increase the likelihood of transmission.
Aside the long stay of people in an enclosed environment, congregants dance and sing aloud and this could release multiple times as many respiratory droplets as a cough.
Gyms and Fitness Centres
The major problem here is the poor ventilation and intensity of the workouts. This could speedly spread the infection.
But if you must visit the gym, prepare to walk in equipped with your personal protective gear. This is for your safety and the safety of those around you.
