Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika said it is almost impossible to achieve physical distancing on flights without hurting the revenue of airlines. . He said this during a webinar attended by stakeholders in the aviation sector. The webiner focused on the status of the industry restart. . Sirika was responding to a question from the Managing Director of Aero Contractors, Capt. Ado Sanusi, who wondered if social distancing would affect the prices of airfares. . The minister said total social distancing was impossible to attain in the airplanes. . He said, “The person sitting beside or behind you is not two meters away from you. . “When people say they would block one seat between passengers, what of the guy behind you and the one in front of you? The guy in front of you is in danger, should you sneeze or cough, you are actually coughing over his head. . “ It is very difficult to achieve because it means you have to take a sit on my left, right in front and behind to achieve at least 0.5 meters.” . Sirika said achieving social distancing on flights would mean that airlines stick with 40 per cent of their carrying capacity. . He argued, “To achieve that you are saying 30 or 40 per cent capacity should be allowed. I think we should research more between today and over the weekend to come up with something that we can announce soon." —– Follow us for breaking news and videos. —- #flights #socialdistancing #reopening #punchnewspapers

Wole Oyebamiji, secretary to the Osun state government has tested positive for Coronavirus. The state's Commissioner for Health Dr. Rafiu Isamotu made the announcement on Tuesday, June 30, while confirming 10 additional cases. . Dr. Isamotu who blamed nonchalant attitude of citizens and residents for the sudden rise in the COVID-19 cases in state, also disclosed that one patient was discharged after testing negative. . He said “If you observe, our cases have been on the rise consistently in the last two weeks or so. The reason is simple. Our people are beginning to be too casual about the spread of the virus. The lack of strict adherence to safety protocols and guidelines is one of the main reasons for the rise. As a matter of fact, we are beginning to suspect that we have community transmission around Ilesa axis. . “Government is reviewing the cases. Soon, we shall announce other stricter measures to contain the spread of the virus in that axis. . “Today, we intensified our enforcement drive. All those arrested were made to go through a compulsory course on COVID-19 preventive protocols. We will go a step further by setting up a mobile court to try and sentence violators of safety protocols and guidelines. We must collectively join hands with the government to contain the spread of the virus. . “Also, I want to confirm to you that our SSG and some of the staff around him have tested positive to the virus. But they are all in stable condition and are receiving adequate medical care.”

Where are the people still saying that the Government is using the Covid19 cases to collect and squander funds. People are now identifying individuals they know on a one on one relationship, who have either caught the virus or dead from it. Stay safe and don’t be a statistics. This is real.

The government of the world are torn between safe guarding lives and upholding the economy. These things are paramount to every country. So what is being done is to let people go about their daily hustle and work, hoping they will be responsible enough to look after their own safety. But with the rate of doubting Thomases on the streets of Lagos State, it is clear that the virus has more than enough people to come in contact with, because no one is bothered about masks any longer and it is scary to witness. These people are submitting themselves voluntarily due to doubt, to be used by Coronavirus as vessels to transfer. Be wise and be safe.
