Corronavirus: Sex Workers Halt Operations , Amaka Enemo The National Coordinator, Nigeria Sex Workers Association says sex workers in the country have been forced to suspend activities, especially in Lagos and Abuja, due to the lockdown in order curb the spread of the COVID-19. Enemo stated that though sex workers offer “essential services” they would remain indoors because their services involve “substantial bodily contact”. However the association had been able to sensitize its members to the dangers of COVID-19.She maintained that, there is no way sex workers can do their work without body contact. So, they are staying at home to watch what happens.“The government has announced a lockdown and as law-abiding citizens, we will not flout the law. If the government says sit at home, we will all obey because nobody wants to die. As the coronavirus death toll climbs, if the sex workers continue to work they face risking their own and others’ health. Families who financially depend upon the income of the sex workers have been hit hard by the COVID-19 outbreak.The national coordinator said, “The lockdown affects street workers and those at home equally. For the sake of their health, they should all stay at home and avoid bodily contact. So, we stay at home but we are sharing materials that will keep them safe.
