Nigerians on social media have condemned the government’s failure to limit crowds at the burial, saying it was a missed opportunity to educate the public about the essence of social distancing.
This is especially as citizens continue to attend churches and mosques in defiance of shelter-in-place measures imposed by state and federal authorities to keep stop large and frequent gatherings.
I’m mortified at the wanton disregard of @NCDCgov guidelines on funerals, on everything that has to do with COVID-19. Bloody hell.
The irresponsibility of exposing all these people to a virus that the world doesn’t yet understand and we are so terribly ill-equipped to handle!3411:56 – 18 Apr 2020Twitter Ads information and privacy34 people are talking about this
I’m watching the departure of the remains of late Mallam Abba Kyari from the Defence Guest House this morning. Unfortunately, social distancing is not being observed. Internationally, many who attended burials of #COVID victims turned ill themselves. Be responsible, stay safe.1810:33 – 18 Apr 2020Twitter Ads information and privacy51 people are talking about this
