    leting a black person to isolate themselves will just lead us to many cases,the minister of health should understand that this disease is not a joke,when a person comes from outside country ,let them not mix with other people for 14 days so u can surely see that they are not infected,rather than leting them go to there homes and say they should isolate themselves,that is impossible.look now!

    Let God’s wil be done as we pray for protection, no man is an island, calamities do not choose who to visit, God created and distroyed when people multiplied on earth because of sinning without considering their creator’s will. God is merciful to us, thank you hon chitalu chilufya and your team for your hard work, 36 is not from within our community, but with those who blessed.

    Let us not bother ourselves by putting into account other innocent causes of the virus in our country, but rather to sincerely say that immigration has been the only cause of this effect in our country, therefore, considering the wise saying of, ‘ prevention is better than cure,’ will we going to still allow all those people from high risk countries of covid_19 in our country? If yes, are we ready for taking care and curing our people who are going to be infected in thousands of number every week. Please let us critically think over this.

    #Muyenga2….Its because they want to make this outbreak a fundraising venture that’s why they didn’t even bother to close the airports and borders.

    People of God let’s pray very much not playing very much with COVID19 as they say prevention is better than cure. Moreover they is no cure the only thing they are concerned is the economy which is curable but that virus doesn’t care whether you are rich or poor baby or old pregnant anointed pastor prophet apostles or pent JW Catholics only God can help us out of this problem. Let’s pray to our God and take caution! Of COVID19
