COVID-19 | The AlCZ Implements Covid-19 Remedial And Precautionary Measures As Confirmed Cases Rise To 29

Zambia, yesterday, recorded six more confirmed cases of Covid-19 bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 28. And in the last 24 hours, Zambia has recorded another case raising the national total to 29.

The Minister of Health stated that three were from those that travelled to Pakistan, while the other three were from among those who have since made contact with those who travelled. The latest case involves another man who had travelled from Pakistan on the 18th of March.

Following these revelations of the majority of the cases being linked to those who had travelled to Pakistan, the Association of the Indian Community in Zambia (AlCZ), yesterday, mandated the Hindu and Muslim communities to immediately implement Covid-19 remedial and precautionary measures!

“You will have just seen the Coronavirus update at 13hrs today by the Hon. Minister of Health, Dr. Chitalu Chilufya. The number of confirmed cases in now 28, and most of those cases arise from those that travelled to Pakistan and upon returning those that came in contact with them,” read the statement in part.

The AlCZ went on to request its members to immediately go into self imposed isolation for at least a period of two weeks; and to close all business houses during the same period.

The AlCZ, however, stated that during this period of self isolation, those running essential services should remain open, namely; pharmacies, millers and food stores, but that they must adhere to strict hygiene standards as prescribed by the Ministry of Health.

“For those households that have domestic workers living on site, please ensure that they are adequately briefed on the importance of hygiene and should equally also be self isolated within the confines of the domestic quarters. For those that have domestic help, who come from other areas, please provide them with adequate food rations and money and equally ask them to return home and self isolate themselves in their respective homes,” guided the communique.

    This makes me fell to understand why did the government monitoring those who went abload not put them on grantine after they came back?the government is just reporting how people brought the coronavirus but not putting measures to travelers.

  21. Joshua

    Maintaining the capacity of the recorded case is a good work being done by government… I feel good that they are providing confidential information that can make us feel safe and be safe actually. Let us as the citizens adhere (follow) all protective measures so as to come back to our Zambia that we want……The Zambia that is productive and hardworking.. So far so good no case of death has been recorded and that’s a good thing… Please let us leave all this in the capable hands of God..

    jxt burn all those infected wt the virus…than waiting for them to infect more people…burn 29 and save 15million plus Zambians…It jxt my opinion

    • The Truth

      would you still recommend the burning if you were one of the 29? the fact is that if God allows a problem to happen to anyone it is for a greater reason that only he knows and that only he can solve. the best thing you can do is to pray for them to recover instead of being selfish. no matter how careful you’re in this world you can’t run away from the problem that was meant for you. instead you can only trust God and ask him to help you through the bad time

  29. Mr. Lusaka Kuseni

    Mr. Chilufya you should tell business man and business woman to selling in there markets coz abantu balefula kwati katwishi.
