Two more covid-19 patients discharged

TWO more people have been discharged from COVID-19 isolation Centre in Lusaka bringing the total number of the people that have recovered to five.
Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya said the two were tested twice and the results were negative.
Dr Chilufya also said during the daily update on Covid-19 that no new cases were recorded in the last 24 hours and that 99 people were tested.
He said 1063 cases had been tested in Zambia so far.
Dr Chilufya warned that the continued recording of zero cases of Covid-19 should not bring about carelessness among citizens, saying that complacency was the greatest threat to the fight against the virus.
“Complacency is the greatest threat we are witnessing now as we fight Covid-19. People are not taking the measures seriously,” Dr Chilufya said.
Dr Chilufya advised citizens to ensure that food was thoroughly cooked to avoid any chances of being exposed to Covid-19.
He also assured communities living around the newly established Covid-19 isolation centre at the University of Zambia that measures had been put in place to ensure they do not get infected.
Dr Chilufya said Government would never be careless to establish an isolation centre for Covid-19 while putting the community at risk.
He said the number of active cases now stood at 33, and that country had continued to making steady progress in ensuring that citizens remain safe which had resulted in the country not recording any new cases in the last 4 days.
Dr Chilufya said surveillance was being enhanced and ordered all provinces to mount check points to screen people entering their localities.
