FIGHTING COVID-19 IN THE GAMBIA – A LONG WAY TO GO

1321
Dear Mr. Editor,
As a concern Gambian, I was surprised when I visited the Latri Kunda Sabiji Market on Saturday and observed that there was not a single Bucket or Tank of sanitizer place in that BIG market with the thousands of people that were going in and out of the market including the shoppers and vendors. Noting that the market is located between two major roads. I went round through out the maket and could not find any of that precaution strategy placed for the people to wash their hands. Who is responsible to ensure that these things are in place?
I also realized that certain carparks and routes are being used by overloaded commercial vehicles and vans with people / public commuting.
Typical examples is the Nema carparks not far from KAW JUCTION in Latrikunda, and vans taking a back roads enrouting Wellingara heading to Sinchu and old Yundum and it seems there is no control. Where should such be reported?
Certain shops that were not suppose to open were also opening thus attracting public gatherings and there are other wrongs unhygenic things happening.
In as much we want to collectively FIGHT COVID19 in the Gambia, other HOTLINES should be created to enable CONCERN GAMBIANS to report such discrepancies and unlawful practices that can quickly cause the rapid sread of thw CORONA VIRUS in the Gambia.
Some people are bent on violating the measures and rules laid by the PRESIDENT. I foresee Gambia have a LONG way to go in the fight against COVID19.
I  even called 1025 this Sunday morning to know where to lay my complain, but the line is not working.
MAY GOD BLESS US ALL.
From A Concerned Gambian.
