COVID-19 | Confirmed Cases Of The Novel Coronavirus Have Jumped To 35. … as one still remains in a critical condition.

Health Minister Dr. Chitalu Chilufya has disclosed that the latest cases involve persons that contracted the virus from another line of contacts that had direct interaction with the team that returned from Pakistan and tested positive to COVID-19.

One of them is a domestic worker of the first victims, raising more concerns about the spread of the virus.

Dr. Chilufya said this situation should raise alarm among Zambians that must now take seriously precautionary measures put in place by practicing high levels of hygiene and staying home.

“Zambia will not risk introducing new people with cases. Truckers will be quarantined at ports of entry to curb the spread of Covid-19,” he said.

“The fact that we have person to person cases should raise alarm. For those of you going to bars, casinos, social gatherings, be aware that this is serious. Let us enhance hand washing. This is the only way that we will address the person to person cases.”

    The problem with Zambians z that we are too argumentative. Someone wanted to great me in the afternoon, so told safety kulisunga bemwine, to my surprise he said how many death have u head in Launshya, I told him that the apedemic has come & he z not eexceptional. We need more education. More specially the culture of shaking hands Maya.

    Plz note the place where covid 19 started the cases have gone down, but the new cases in China are coming from those entering China, similarly, in Zambia while we tracking the spriral of the cases that we have seriously put stringent measures on borders & airports or else the situation will get worse and worse each day.

  24. bravo

    Convid19 very very deadly. Now calculate using roman numeration and thereafter subtract the number 19.Have spiritual sight and invite the holy spirit.We r in at war with the powers and principalities of the dark world the underworld. Let he that has wisdom understand what the spirit and prophecy are all pointing to.Fear God and repent and choose the right side to be before real real disaster comes.This is just a wake up call brethren. These things r fulfilling the prophecy. But don’t be scared God is awaking all his children so that he keeps them safe and gather them for a course to himself so that they may not receive the mark of the devil.This requires wisdom for one to comprehend. Jesus said not a single word from this book will pass away or fade but all is living truth and shall remain living truth till end of time. Be watchful and alert for many things will have to take place before the real end of time therefore be prayerful and ready for your salvation is near.

    Munthu akakhala pabwino poipa paitana. Human beings are not better than the other two legged creatures, the chickens which have low security alertness. Chickens whenever are attacked by a predator, will only temporarily run away and return to the same site and continue loosing members of their family. Wasn’t Adam warned by God about death? But the fellow went on to receive and eat the forbidden fruit from Eve and now we are dying from the Coronavirus.

  37. Ngulube

    It’s a good thing that dr chilufya has set a measure by putting a bound between covid19 and the learning institutions. Zambia let’s follow the protective measures as implemented by the ministry of health. God is on our side
