(Video) Why Government Must Provide Adequate Ambulance Transport During Lockdowns

For governments and the governed, this is a season where lockdowns can happen at any time. Because if done well, lockdowns can kill off coronavirus.

But if not handled well, lockdowns can lead to potentially life-threatening situations. Take the situation in the video below:

The video shows a man reportedly carrying his very very sick wife to hospital. There was no public transport, so he had to trek, carrying her.

Until a good Samaritan took pity on them… The thing is, if government wants to lockdown, they should also make sure that there are enough ambulances for pregnant women, and people that suffer other ailments that are not coronavirus like accident victims and people who suffer heart attacks.

Watch the disturbing video: video loading…

Government should be mindful of this. If you tell public transport services not to operate, then make sure there are a significant amount of ambulances for emergency responce.

A situation where the police are forced to become ambulances as recently seen should be avoided if possible so they can so they can do their own critical job.

Sad photos from the fatal accident along Ekpoma Road that killed a man this morning

The accident involved an Imo Transport Company bus, which somersaulted and threw at least one passenger out of the bus and to his death.

No one knows which day wold be his last. We therefore have to be ready to go anytime death comes calling. That includes leading an upright life. RIP to the dead.

The Government should also be up to the game of given us good roads. Obviously, overspeeding is something that people should avoid. I know it is liberating to speed on the road, but you as the one driving must always remind yourself that you have loved ones that wouldn’t want anything bad to happen to you. That may help.
