I was not aware of lockdown – Destitute
A Woman from Epworth dressed in rags and picking plastic bottles from bins was a rare sight in town following the disappearing of street kids and vulnerable people during the national lockdown.
The unidentified woman told H-Metro that she walked from Epworth into town unaware that people had let-ters to accompany them for movement during the 21 days national lockdown.
“I am just picking empty plastic bot-tles for sale, and I am not aware that we are not allowed to carry our business in town: she said, expressing ignorance over the COVID-19 lockdown.
“I am used to walking into town to save money since I have two children to look after separating from my abusive husband.
“What surprised me upon arriving in town is the number of people and the closure of shops, but I decided to fulfill my purpose of coming: she said.
A survey by H-Metro on Day Nine of the 21-day national lockdown saw an increase in the volume of traffic in the CBD as compared to previous days.
Supermarkets, banks, Automated Teller Machines, government offices and a few others remained the points where a number of people could be seen.
