The Zambia Medical Association has disclosed that 16 medical doctors have succumbed to COVID-19 from January 2021 to date.
Association President Dr Samson Chisele says the Association is worried to see such a huge number of frontline health workers die during this difficult time.
Dr Chisele has described the loss of the 16 doctors as a fivefold increase compared to 3 who died in 2019.
Meanwhile, Dr Chisele has welcomed the government’s decision to approve the acquisition of Covid-19 vaccines saying, it will lessen the disease burden.
