The Ministry of Health says there is a general drop in compliance with Covid-19 health guidelines following the easing of some restrictions.

Health Permanent Secretary in charge of Technical services Kennedy Malama says President Edgar Lungu was categorical when he opened some sectors of the economy, that it will be dependent on strict adherence to health guidelines without which restrictions may be reinforced.

Dr. Malama says with increased interaction, there is a chance of a spike in COVID-19 cases especially if the guidelines are not followed.
