“I carry a message from His Excellency the President of the Republic of Zambia Dr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu to you saluting you for your hard work, your patriotism, for the diligence which you are serving the people of Nakonde during this outbreak of COVID-19.” Dr. Chitalu stated.

He emphasized that the President recognized all frontline Health Workers as true Heroes and Heroines and that the entire country was behind them.

“We know that you are at risk we know how much sacrifice you are putting in away from your families and we know that this is really you summoning the best of your selves in your profession.” the Minister added.

While observing social distancing and other precautionary measures, Dr. Chilufya took the time to encourage Health Workers and ordinary citizens who were quarantined at the facility.

Speaking on behalf of his fellow health workers Gerald Chishitu thanked Government for ensuring that they had all the necessary support especially Personal Protective Equipment as they conducted their work .

“We know that it’s been a very busy period for you as government, we have seen how the pandemic has evolved from Lusaka to Nakonde now . But with your presence here it gives us motivation to even work harder. We will not also forget other areas such as the legacy goals where we are fighting tuberculosis, malaria and other diseases that mother Zambia is facing.” Gerald stated .

  2. Does this mean there will be no corona virus briefing today or this is enough for today? True, why wearing like a Frontline health worker? A mask was enough for him. This shows us how selfish these ministers are. PF must go!

  6. How come the minister is in the required PPE and the so called Frontline Health workers can only afford a mask, no goggles, no gowns, nothing?? Any wonder why our health workers are getting the infection? We are not saying the minister should not protect himself. All we are saying is no health worker should catch this infection if they are given the full PPE like the minister is using. It’s not enough to sweet talk health workers to continue the covid fight without adequately protecting them! No job is worth doing if it cannot be done safely!

  7. It’s not fair, these PF goons always think their lives are more special than the rest of us…shame!

  8. Those in the medical field, is it advisable for someone asthmatic or anyone with lung diseases to put on these masks and for how long should one put it on, what are the chances that one might impede the intake of oxygen , thus one incapacitating the functioning of the body ?.eg the brain.

  9. “I carry a message from His Excellency the President of the Republic of Zambia Dr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu to you saluting you for your hard work, your patriotism, for the diligence which you are serving the people of Nakonde during this outbreak of COVID-19.” Dr. Chitalu stated.

  11. what a joke, with this Chilufya. He is segregating who to give PPE. And yet, COVID, doesnt select that you are opposition or PF. Share equally, with all other provinces. We know you chilufya, you are so corrupt.

  12. Madilu system – I highly doubt there will be covid-19 updates today as the chef has left the kitchen…everything revolves around one man no delegating because of too many lies to keep track of!!!

  13. The…….in ppe the front lines in masks. No social distance. He has come to deliver a message from…..yah these guys must be serious. You wear a bullet proof in the battlefield and and hold the gun then you give your soldiers in the front line knives to fight an enemy complicated as covid. That’s being selfish. Scared leader. You encourage your soldiers to fight by leading by example not showing that u are the most scared
