Two New COVID-19 cases recorded in Chingola

Health Two New COVID-19 cases recorded in Chingola

Chingola District has become the latest hotspot for COVID-19 in Zambia, after recording two cases, bringing to 76, the cumulative number of cases in the country.

The two cases, which are the only ones recorded in the last 24 hours, involve a couple, that had traveled to Tanzania.

Health Minister, Chitalu Chilufya confirmed this today in Lusaka, during the routine COVID -19 update.

Dr Chilufya explained that the couple, both aged 45, had traveled to Dar-re-Salaam, and came back through Nakonde border post in Muchinga province.

He said that screening at Nakonde border post, therefore, needs to be tightened, just like the government is doing in all places.

And, Dr. Chilufya has disclosed that the suspicious death at the University Teaching Hospital -UTH- earlier reported this week, is NOT COVID-19 related.

He explained that investigations and tests have revealed that the man, who was evacuated to the UTH from Choma in Southern Province did not die from COVID-19.

Dr. Chilufya, however, said authorities are investigating another suspicious death in Mongu, Western province, involving a female and the results will be announced later.

He said that anyone that arrives in the Country from a COVID -19 High-risk country will be quarantined at Government designated institution but at their own cost.

Earlier, Information and Broadcasting Services Minister Dora Siliya said tomorrow will mark two weeks that President Edgar Lungu made an extension on the COVID -19 measures.

Ms Siliya said that the nation needs to wait for further advice.

She cautioned Zambians to continue to adhere to the measures and also stay home and avoid non – essential travel.

    • My concern is on some dirt looking masks some people are putting on, hope that won’t be a recipe for other respiratory diseases like tuberculosis.

  1. And his dull boss is there talking about unlocking the economy so businesses can start operating when its all business as normal in Zambia maybe he means bars…people are still coming in and out of the country..ask this Chilufya how he found out that they had covid-19 have you tested anyone in CB. How can you quarantine someone at their own expense? You are not serious about fighting the disease ..where are you taking all the funds allocated to fight the pandemic Chilufya?

  2. The Corona virus is incubating in people, by the time this PF government realizes it will mass graves everywhere whay is happening now in developed countries. It will painful for moment for most of us because there shall be no farewell departure. Does Chilufya Chitalu know that even those who have been cleared now can test positive again after a week or so. Not that there is secondary infection, this is mysterious disease which has taken the world by surprise.

  3. The time dull politicians realise how serious COVID 19 is serious may be late. I still don’t understand how people from high risk countries like Tanzania are allowed to mingle freely with the rest of the population. Why are we still receiving travelers at the international airport? Mwe bantu what is happening mu Zambia kanshi.
    The virus does not move by itself.It is moved when we move.Now try to get the contacts of the couple from the time they arrived at the border till they arrived in Chingola.

  4. Why are we still having imported cases at this time. So what about those that illegally travel in and out of the country? We need to be serious

  5. Very laughable. I pray to satan that Zambia is taught lesson for choosing such useless leaders. I foresee a million deaths there. You will tell me.

  6. All sensible bloggers, I invite you to join me on zambian watchdog. LT is finished and has been overtaken by pf sympathizers. Very laughable. I am a moderator on Zambia watchdog and will only welcome those that genuinely want to debate and can offer checks and balances. We do not have pf thugs there. Join me or continue talking to criminals here.

  7. That’s the horrid man-child impostor only him invites bloggers to visit socal media pages and websites of X and Y …you see apart from the anti diaspora rants and impersonations the chap is a mere empty vessel stinking of urine.

  8. I don’t understand why people are still visiting neighbouring countries despite the directive to stay home. If it is so difficult to control cross-border travellers, then make sure that you at least enforce mandatory quarantine.

  9. @Tarino now I believe other bloggers who say you need deliverance. How can you seriously wish death for millions of innocent people just to satisfy your ego? In case you didn’t know, Jesus Christ is Lord the only one who offers salvation from death’s mighty grip. Theres is NO other name for our Salvation, including yours for he said “I AM”.

  11. This just confirms that our borders are still porous 5/6 weeks after credible evidence to restrict unnecessary travel to/from other countries. It’s obvious Little Covid fires are smouldering around & could easily flare up into a national calamity. At this stage all countries should be classified as high risk instead of playing with semantics.

  12. Ok now I am convinced that tarino is a house neeegar. How you wish death on your own brothers? I am convinced u chicolouuur you are just shinning old wyt mens shoes at Heathrow airport because they didn’t even allow you to enter England. Ukabwelela mambala and as soon as you land pa international nkaku bula nokukupanta ifibaka. Galu iwe

  13. There is nothing you can do to me. I can visit Zambia as much as I like. I have human rights. Ever heard of freedom of speech? You urine sticking rogue. Zambia is now a banana republic.how laughable

  14. Tarino Orange and some other deranged Watchdog bloggers and commentators that came to Lusaka Times are not Zambian. Some of them nivi ma lomba. Demons in human flesh. How can you say such a thing about a nation and it’s people. Even Kaizar imposter Zulu as foul and unpleasant as he is would never wish evil on Zambia. Clearly brain health is something Zambia should invest in. May the Lord Jesus cover Zambia with his healing hand. May he open up Zambians to cleanliness and staying their selves at home. Let us defeat this nonsense.

  15. And what is the status of our health personnel bwana minister? Have you given them PPE as we instructed you yesterday?

  16. Nine Chali – you believe I wrote this rubbish…you are playing straight into the hands of the man child impostor!!

  17. You pipo I know we have differences but please let us be mindful with things we say here. If you hate zambia then fair enough it’s your right to hate the country. But please there is no need to wish such evil on innocent lives. You are only wishing death on yourself because the lord is more powerful than satan. You are playing with fire. Repent

  18. Tarino every time you say some evil things you are claiming it’s someone else and not you. You are a constar who is very evil. I know your aim here. Our pastor has told me about crooked snakes like you. Always claiming other are using your account to post? Do not be silly.

  19. The president needs to send the national Service to cover all border lines with proper PPE. Today and not tomorrow.

  20. They should just stop reporting bcz they are not serious. What’s the point of reporting instead of acting? Is it hard to know that this disease is spreading to other districts via public transport? It’s like letting something happen deliberately then coming on TV to report. It’s upsetting why can’t u close borders and public transport?

  21. For those who follow frequent bloggers here, you should be aware that there are people who do from time to time pretend to be someone else by using their alias – especially when they have serious disagreements and want to disparage them in full view of everyone else. I do notice the change of style and immediately can tell that it is not the usual blogger. It is despicable, because we ought as much as possible to be constructive and use more palatable language. We all do now and again, including myself, get emotional and get carried away with ‘hard tones’. But pig headedness and persistent use of insults becomes another matter.

  22. God bless Zambia we need leaders with a heart for the country not leaders who are ready to rip off the country we pray for our mother land to be spared even from this covid 19.

  24. BaSichalwe just start saving for your coffin and funeral expenses. Your so called leaders have allowed this covid-19 nonsense to come to your door step. My family and I are safely locked down at the farm. Tilipeeee pamthuzi mubbale wangaa….!

  25. Look how evil some diasporans can be. Nothing surprises me from that sadist tarino. His anger is worse under lock down in England where people are dying like flies.

  26. Lusambo’s conduct political asphyxiating mischief, pantomime – Mpombo
    FORMER Defense Minister George Mpombo has condemned Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo’s style of leadership, saying planting fear in the minds of people is not fighting the COVID-19 pandemic but a set back.
    And Mpombo says it is baffling and mind boggling that the minister’s appointing authority has remained silent about this.
    In an interview, Mpombo appreciated Lusambo’s zeal to fight covid-19 but encouraged him to do so within the confines of the law.
    “It’s politically and morally unjustifiable for a government minister to behave in a manner of a loose political cannon and unleash an incredible pile of distractive political pandemonium and melodrama, all in the distorted view of fighting COVID-19. This…

  27. Useless government,why do you allow people going and coming out of other countries which on high risks of the virus,
    Tanzania is on high risk but pipo are busy going there.

  28. BOSS,U ARE CHANNEL FOR FUNDRAISING FOR PF CZ PF IS SO IMPECUNIOUS. WHERE IS THE K28M DONATED BY TRADE KINGS ETC? THEY IS ALOT OF CORRUPTION. WE ARE WATCHING. START KEEPING THE RECEIPTS FOR US THE AUDITORS. A BATCH OF CROOKS.

  29. HIS IS THE TRUTH EVEN LUSAMBO,KZ AND RED LIP THEY KNOW THAT COVID 19 IS A CAPITAL VENTURE FOR PF. CZ NO WAYS WHERE THE HEALTH WORKERS DON’T HAVE ENOUGH PPES. WHERE DID THE CASH GO TO WHICH HAS BEEN DONATED BY WELL MEANINGFUL ZAMBIANS? IF GOD WAS TO REVEAL IT TO U TEARS CAN DROP THAT THE WHOLE CASH RAISED IS GOING IN THE THERE POCKETS. BETTER,WE HAVE INDEPENDENT AUDITORS TO AUDIT. THE WHOLE PF REGIME DOESN’T MEAN WELL. THEY ARE THE WORST. EVEN KZ KNOWS THAT. WHAT A SHAME. CZ OF YOUR CORRUPTION ZAMBIA CANNOT BE GIVEN ANY AID FROM WELL MEANINGFUL ORGANISATIONS LIKE IMF,WORLD BANK ETC CZ OF GREEDY MONEY HUNGRY INDIVIDUALS WHO WOULD WANT TO AMASS WEALTH AT THE EXPENSE OF POOR PEOPLE.
