The need to control the spread of Coronavirus pandemic in Plateau State has recorded partial success in its second day, today, as few shops are closed and people deliberately refused to stay indoors, especially, in the state capital.
REALITY finding shows that, most of the private sector businesses, which have stylishly obeyed the order of the Plateau State Government to remain shut, have their outlets disobeying the same order, as they remain opened.
At the popular Terminus Market area at the center of Jos city, though most shops are closed down, the humans the state government’s policy intends to save from the pandemic are all around and communicating with each other, while not obeying the distance expected.
Findings also show that, the government at both state and federal level, have failed to match the supply and demand determinants, so, the prices of the food stuff, hand gloves, hand sanitizers, nose and mouth masks have sky rocked.
However, report just reaching the news desk of REALITY indicates that security operatives in the state have started enforcing the stay at home by tear gassing traders at the Terminus Market.
