Zambia Medical Association condemns public insinuations regarding alleged faking of COVID 19 results

The Zambia Medical Association has condemned public insinuations and proclamations regarding alleged faking of COVID 19 results.

Association President Dr. Samson Chisele says the Association will stand by members of the medical profession, regardless of their current standing in society, including the current Minister of Health Dr. Chitalu Chilufya.

Dr Chisele says the Association finds unsubstantiated public accusations that Dr. Chilufya, a member of the Zambia Medical Association, with the aid of other medical professionals, faked his COVID 19 results, as a slap in the face of the medical profession.

“We, as a medical profession pride ourselves of being the custodian of medical procedures and processes, and pitch medical ethics very high in our practice. All doctors work under strict medical ethics, breaching of which can result in dire consequences”, he said.

Dr Chisele said the COVID 19 medical response is being led by very experienced, internationally acclaimed public health experts and clinical specialists who are members of the Zambia Medical Association.

He said it is extremely unfair to put the reputations of these noble medical practitioners into disrepute.

“We ask all well meaning members of the general public to treat insinuations of faked COVID 19 results with the contempt they deserve”, said Dr Chisele.

TELL THEM TO GO WERE ALL SUSPECTED PATIENTS ARE BEING KEPT AT QUARSNTINE. NOT AT HOME. YOU SHOULD LISTTEN TO PEOPLE, YOU ARE THE ONES WHO MAKE PEOPLE START DOUBTING YOU WITH THE STANCE YOU TAKE TOWARDS ISSUES. DORA SAID SHE INFORMED MINISTRY OF FINANCE THAT SHE HAD COVID. HAVE YOU SEEN WHAT IS HERE? NOW IF SHE INFORMED MINISTRY OF HEALTH THAT SHE HAD COVID, THEN WHO EXAMED HER? THAT IS WHY PEOPLE SAY IT IS FAKE. PUT THINGS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU EMBRAASE YOURSELVES WITH WHAT YOU REPORT. MIND YOU, PEOPLE ARE VERY EDUCATED TODAY THAN DURING THE KAUNDA ERRA.

  5. They are stiff naked beings.They don’t listen.They will listen in 2021 when we kick them out of corridors of power.
    They’ll lament uncontrollably.They are thieves who went to investigate their fellow thieves.What do expect out of them?

  6. Only a person with a superstitious mind and no empathy at all will accuse someone of faking their illness, a public figure and a medical professional for that matter. Should the condition of these people get worse or even lead to death, the accusers will even go to the extent of finding other superstitious explanations just to maintain their position. They will even dismiss any form of evidence just to lean upon their own misunderstanding. People like this are dangerous and pose a great threat to the community because they’re not interested in facts.

    • Nine Chale – I support you, these kind of people belong to the world of darkness and when we say they are Satanists some people think we are joking. They just want people to die so they can suck their blood. Even some grade 12 failures above who are arguing with well qualified doctor they think Kambwili and HH can solve Covid 19. Its a waste of time listening to these morons.

  7. Mr Patriotic Zambian. When you are Covid-19 positive with no visible symptoms you can Quarantine at home. However, when you have symptoms you go to the Quarantine centre for possible treatment.

  8. Correction:
    Quarantine is to Suspected unconfirmed COVID (not tested) as ISOLATION is to Confirmed COVID (Tested). Both can be in an institution or homebased. Only those with moderate to severe symptoms are managed in the isolation facility for close monitoring. Of course, the president during his last address, corrected the mistake that was made in Isoka and Nakonde where Asymptomatic COVID patients were isolated in a facility. And naturally, the Well patients will want to entertain themselves as we saw.
    What brings the Zambian Covid Response into question is the political interference! ZMA should not allow itself to be drawn into politics but professionally give guidance only where necessary!

  9. The Brazilian government was trying to cover up the covid-19 situation.Sadly the number of burials increased exponentially and extent of the covid-19 spread was eventually exposed.
    Mangufuli is trying to do the same in Tanzania.He claims everything is under control in the hands of God. Yet videos of burials taking place in the night with armed police are emerging .Furthermore neighboring countries like Kenya,Zambia and Malawi are struggling to cope with infected Tanzanian cross border traders and drivers.
    YOU CANT HIDE THE TRUTH.

  10. kubasansafye ntu Covid 19 viruses epela. And when they come for medical attention, let the doctors run away from them while shouting its fake, its fake….then bazamuziba Yesu.
