Decision To Ease Lockdown Is Due To Reduced COVID-19 Cases – Chitalu Chilufya

Health Minister Dr. Chitalu Chilufya has said that the decision to reopen schools, higher learning institutions, and partial operation of bars and nightclubs was due to a reduced number of recorded positive cases in the recent past.

Speaking during the COVID-19 update, the Health Minister reminded Zambians that should there be complacency on health guidelines the Head of State might tighten restrictions on the patronage of bars and nightclubs.

Zambia has in the last 24 hours recorded 73 new COVID-19 cases out of 982 tests bringing the cumulative total cases to 13,539, with 253 discharges and a total of 12,260 recoveries and zero deaths.
