Lusaka Commercial sex worker among those infected with Covid-19 as Doctor tests positive

Headlines Lusaka Commercial sex worker among those infected with Covid-19 as Doctor tests...

A commercial sex worker based in Lusaka is one of those that have tested positive for Coronavirus after she slept with a South African national who visited Zambia two weeks ago.

The sex worker whose names have been withheld is now undergoing treatment at the Coronavirus treatment centre at the Levy Mwanawasa Hospital.

Ministry of Health officials has revealed that the commercial sex worker was critically ill when she checked herself into the hospital and that her condition is now stable.

Health workers performed contact tracing after she stabilized and she admitted to having offered her services to a South African national who was in Zambia for business some two weeks ago.

The health personnel later phoned the South African client who was discovered to be very ill in hospital undergoing treatment for Coronavirus.

Meanwhile, a medical Doctor at the Cancer Diseases Hospital in Lusaka has tested positive for COVID-19.

Information obtained from Ministry of Health shows that this has caused panic at Cancer Diseases Hospital after it emerged that the said Doctor had interacted with more than 30 other doctors before being tested.

Health Minister Dr Chitalu Chilufya yesterday confirmed that COVID-19 cases had risen to 35.

  1. I have woken up with a terrible bout of stomach upset. Pray for me you good people of Zambia. No demon shall prosper. God shall protect me. Amen !fire!

    As for our friends in the s.e.x industry please we do not condone your trade but at atleast at this time try and refrain from your trade. You will lead to wide spread of the virus due to your close contact with possible carriers. Do not be f.o.oled into thinking arvs protect you. The world does not know much about this virus. Take care

  2. Easier said than done. Myself when I came across these women near Addis Ababa road when i visited Zambia I couldn’t help myself. I regretted not using protection but got tested when i got back to the UK. Luckily I was cleared. After that I have never looked at a woman again. Women are evil. Better to self s.e.x.

  4. Yangu bane, tafyumfwa ifi fim se.x workers.
    As for that doctor must be Paki cohorts who came on Emirates, not so ba Chilufya? Uluse lwesu twafwa nomba!!

  5. ..am sure the sick south african also claimed he got it from the sex worker.
    Tighten it you Health and Immigration officials, this is pathetic performance, especially immigration who saw the trips made by the cohorts and where they came from, Kampyongo, this is your area not so?

  6. Covic-19 is not sexually transmitted.

  7. Not even sure how to comment on this headline. Fact is everyone is at risk but certain groups are at a higher risk than others. Those in the medical field are the most unfortunate because they risk their own lives while trying to save others.

    All in all, the fight against this virus will not only be won by personal hygiene alone. A composed and calm approach is equally important. No need to panic whenever you get a slight cough, stomach upset or a fever. All the other bodily ailments are not “on holiday” just because Covid 19 is around! In 1918 the Spanish flu killed 50,000,000 people but there were also survivors. African were amongst them. Think about it…

  8. Nine Chale -There you go again displaying your ignorance …convid-19 is a lethal respiratory disease, you are the same people telling people that Africans are immune from it – its just “a slight cough and flu” do you not know that they are elderly and people with other underlying sicknesses in our community. Stop this nonsense…you always come on here posting about pro Africa this and that yet you are married to a German Musungu. How was it possible for Africans to contract Spanish flu when they were not even connected as we are today to Europe.

  10. @Tarino Orange a.k.a Jay Jay I wonder who is exposing ignorance here. If you research, you will find that the Spanish flu claimed half a million Africans in 6 weeks.

    Otherwise, grow up and stop insinuating that I’m spreading myths about the Coronavirus. I never said African were immune. But if scientists say that one is immune after recovering, who am I to disagree? You can take on me anytime but please leave my beloved wife out of this! We are happy to have each other in times like these and our love grows stronger with every day we lockdown in our bedroom.

  13. A sex worker having Covid is a big issue
    Is she one of the 36.

    Are we on top of the game or this one just appeared.

    In Italy the fact that patient zero has never been known has had a telling effect on that wonderful country.

    And in Korea patient 31 has contributed to problems there.

    Here in Zambia, as long as there cases that have not been traced, we will be overwhelmed whe cases just streaming right to every hospital and clinic.

    Let us guard ourselves.

  14. Nine Chale – Are you a diplomat? Why dont you get to the point instead of posting like a shy girl in a sweet shop always beating about the bush…you go read what you wrote before!!

  15. So the guy had sex with the sex worker and left her with a phone number hah? and they called him and answered. Fellow womanizers is this adding up?

  16. Chale ignore that racist boy tarinyo. He is jealous because he went abroad but cannot even manage to get a wife. Even the British can smell a loser from a mile away. Tarinyo is a sad man who has nothing and no one to show him some love. He is crying for help deep inside. Let us give him a virtual hug

  17. @ Tomcat, not at all, it doesn’t add up. Those “missions are covert in nature “. So this is clearly far fetched to be diplomatic.

  18. At this stage and with certain attitudes we know of people, I don’t think it’s necessary to keep stating exactly from which category of society or humanity a person who is infected belongs to.
    Assumed origins, nationalities, now sex worker. Is that crucial? Especially mentioning smaller groupings or minorities, rather than wider ranges or blocks like age, for example

  19. When did Zambia start training and producing Commercial Sex Workers as reported by our news media here? Does this Christian nation allow sex work? In places like the UK and Holland this is a recognized profession. In Zambia police can arrest you if you are selling sex so how come Corona virus is making us such an open society?

  20. When i visted shoprite on Monday, i couldn’t believe myself. It was fully packed, a night club could be better,

  21. At Boity, prostitution is not an offence in Zambia, organised prostitution like brothels and pimps are offences.
    And at some ignorant chap above, commercial sex worker means a prostittute, someone who primarily has sex for commercial purposes

  22. Also, i thought you couldnt get corona from sex? wear a mask, and a gloves, you should be safe.

  23. Do we have Ultrasound methods of tests and examining quickly sometimes self distancing with robotics or artificial intelligence can complement efforts There are cheap and quality solutions from GE healthy care includin ventilators also to help medics manage including solutions for patients management and profiling
