‘We don’t Get Customers Because Of Coronavirus’ – Sex Workers Cry Out

Commercial sex workers have raised alarm over low patronage attributing it to the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Recall that economic and social activities have come to a halt since state governors locked down their states in a bid to stop the spread of coronavirus.

 

Over the past week, schools, parks, markets, clubhouses and recreational centres have been deserted, upending life as most know it.

 

And now, Sex workers in Delta State have decried the situation as patronage has dropped for fear of having contact with an unsuspecting carrier of the disease.

 

An Assistant Manager of one of the five-star hotels on Mariam Babangida Way in Asaba, Mr. Godwin Johnson, yesterday told ThePunch that the disease had put his job on the line.

 

A club attendant on the popular DBS Road in Asaba, who identified herself simply as Vidal, said 10 out the 22 workers at their “Rock and Roll” organisation, had been placed on standby, owing to low patronage.

 

She said:

“Since the disease hit Nigeria through Lagos State and Abuja, and government emphasised restricted access at air and seaports, and banned mass gathering, offering of social amenities and playing of danceable music at clubs drastically dropped within Asaba metropolis. The aftermath is the job insecurity we have been plunged into.”

Vidal said sex workers had recorded low patronage since the outbreak of the disease as customers suddenly lost interest.
