(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.

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.

Video: Lockdown: Dino Melaye Tries To Stop Hawkers, But One Said Something Touching

Senator Dino Melaye shared a video of how he tried to stop some hawkers selling goods during the lockdown.

But on asking them why they didn’t stay back home, one of them told him that she would have stayed home but for the hunger. The hawker sayed that while she can bear the hunger, her children cannot.

On further questioning, she revealed that she had 6 children. After hearing this, Dino was forced to count money and give each of them.

This life is not easy for many many Nigerians. If these people had gotten adequate lockdown relief either in form of significant ‘stay home’ money (like N50k initially) in their BVN-identified bank account or in form of adequate food supplies, many would have stayed home so that coronavirus can expire. The whole thing was captured on video. Video loading…
