The Minister of the Local Government, Prof Shyaka Anastase, said there would be no excuse for leaders who continue to violate the COVID-19 pandemic prevention guidelines, as the number of infections continues to rise, which is why the death toll is rising.

Minister Shyaka said on Thursday that one of the reasons why the country was unable to control the COVID-19 pandemic was that among instructions given, was closing bars but some instead of closing relocated to others places.

He said last month local authorities working with the police found gaps in complying with the regulations.

“In that month alone, we caught 3,500 bars, found 13,000 people in them, that is in just four weeks. That number is very high. ”

"So you find what used to be a bar is called a restaurant, and then you find that the bars have increased. So the disobedience to the rules is causing escalation of spread of COVID 19.”
