  1. Again Jonas at it giving data without knowing what is really happening and how figures are even reduced …you might as well give the office admin to read out the figures.

  2. Dr.Chanda , Zero death does not mean anything positive. It just goes to show under-reporting.
    Am mortified to see how reckless Zambians on how they are observing the COVID 19 regulations. No social distancing, No wearing of masks during the campaign meetings.
    More shocking is how you are quiet on Easter celebrations. World over, the authorities are taking measures to stop the spread by limiting Easter Celebrations.When will the message hit home to show that COVID 19 is deadly and if we don’t take strict measures, people will die.

They want our people to die. How sad and pathetic do you have to be to wish death on your country of birth all for the purposes of supporting your fellow tribal dogs. Muk0ng0 wanu

  6. Unbelievable comments. How can someone seriously maintain that “Zero death does not mean anything positive.” If thousands of deaths were recorded, the same people would be complaining. Happiness can never come to someone who is never satisfied.

  7. No deaths from covid=19 people are dying from starvation and AIDS. Zambia has one of the highest malnutrition rates in the world. Under PF most Zambians go to bed on an empty stomach each night. In Zambia, 60 percent of people live below the poverty line and 42 percent are classified as extremely poor. Poverty rates are highest for female-headed households, with extreme poverty levels of more than 60 percent in rural areas and 15 percent in urban areas.

    Zambia: Under Chinese influence

    FRANCE 24 English
    Some Chinese company have stopped Zambian workers from going home to their families since April last year up to now… as to prevent them from getting infected with covid-19. Chinese can come and go home as they wish. Zambians treated like slaves in our own country by Chinese people who came with nothing. Corrupt government officials wine and dine with the Chinese and turn a blind eye on the mistreatment of Zambians . Chinese buying big chunks of land.. etc..

  9. I am trying to understand. Is the Minister announcing zero deaths a bad thing? Or is it that we wish this was abroad where the disgruntled blogging is emanating from? Ndipo mukaule a mambala. Soon you will be running back for safety. Fyatile!

  10. “On an uplifting note, we did not record any new deaths in the last 24 hours.
    Dr. Chanda further noted that among the admitted cases, 58 are on Oxygen therapy and 10 are in critical condition.
    I repeat Zero death does not mean anything positive. It just goes to show under-reporting. If you understand biostatics you will know what am talking about, The problem in Zambia is that we are living in denial. COVID -19 is still ravaging the country and yet we are to celebrate when we report Zero death because we have not compiled all the reports around the country?It would have been better to say at the time of reporting, new record of death has been reported. Hey 1,198 Zambians hve lost their lives including my relatives and friends.
    Iwe kaiser imitator, you have a low self-esteem of…
