As the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus rises to over 700, in Uganda, Boda-boda riders continue to ignore government directives of wearing face masks properly and practicing social distancing.

Many Ugandans continue to adhere to the directives given by President Yoweri Museveni and the Ministry of Health, in regards to combating the spread of Covid-19. 

However, others continue to defy these directives, and only comply after seeing security personnel and camerapersons. 

Our photojournalist, Richard Sanya, captured pictures of how right or wrong people are wearing their masks and how others are defying the social distancing guideline.
