Livingstone compliance levels drop

By ANDREW MUKOMA
DESPITE Government’s concerted efforts put in place to combat the spread of Covid-19 in the country, some communities in Livingstone are still not adhering to the guidelines.
Residents in communities such as Ngwenya, Mbita, Maramba and Libuyu Townships are not wearing of face masks while social distancing is a challenge.
A survey showed that some people were still in the habit of shaking hands when preventive measures stipulated that there should not be any hand-shakes.
Some traders told the Daily Nation during a random check yesterday in the markets that there was no corona virus in Livingstone.
Traders and their clients were freely interacting without taking into consideration the dangers that came with the pandemic.
The trend has dismayed the Zambia Micro and Small Traders Foundation Cooperative (ZAMAST) in Southern Province.
In an interview in Livingstone, ZAMAST provincial chairperson Fredrick Sakala said, it was unfortunate that some people especially his members were taking the Covid-19 lightly.
