Minister of Health Chitalu Chilufya says Zambia has had no new cases of Covid19 in the last 24 hrs, while the 38 active confirmed cases remain stable in isolation.

Speaking at a press briefing in Lusaka today, Dr. Chilufya also said 1,373 that were part of the 5,656 quarantined for 14 days have been released after testing negative.

Dr. Chilufya said the surveillance team has been following up on the suspects and remains attentive.

He said the Multi sectoral teams are managing borders for inflows of essential products.

Dr. Chilufya also thanked all those that have reported themselves and have undergone the Covid-19 tests.

He re-emphasized the need for people to follow the laid down hygiene methods to stay safe.

Dr. Chilufya further advised traders to do their businesses in clean environments to avert a total shut down of all activities.

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
