AN ANTHRAX infection which had been broken out in Chama District in
Muchinga province has so far been contained, District Commissioner
Josphat Lombe confirmed in Chipata.

Mr Lombe said the disease broke out because of the people who were eating
hippos believed to have been infected with anthrax.

He explained that people shared the carcasses of the dead hippo
which resulted into the break out of anthrax in
Chama District.
.
Mr Lombe said residents have since been sensitized about the danger of
eating hippo meat suspected to have died from anthrax.

Mr Lombe also disclosed that a Chinese company has commenced the construction of Matumbo Bridge across
Luangwa River.

He said the construction of the bridge would provide a shorter route
between the people of Chama and other surrounding districts in
Muchinga province.

He explained that Government has so far provided a belly bridge to
enable people cross on Luangwa River as the construction of Matumbo
bridge was on course.
