ALLOW me through your newspaper, to congratulate President Edgar Lungu for the country being named as one of the six saf-est countries in the world with regards to Covid.
Indeed, I would be remiss not to mention Dr Chitalu Chilufya, the minister of Health and all health workers for implementing a regime of preventive measures which have put our country on the world map as one of the safest in this Covid period.
This goes to show that we are doing well as a nation and we need to have more trust in our own people. Many people were making a mockery of the measures Government was taking, yet now these same measures have proved to be the best.
It is not the noise one makes but what actions they take which matter. In this case, Dr Chilufya and his team of medical personnel took de-cisions that have put the country in a safe zone. They implemented measures to ensure that lives were saved and the President was content with that.
Today, we are all proud that our country is being listed as one of the safest. This is good and one that the tourism sector should take full advantage of.
Let them use this information to market our country and lure tourists. We need foreign exchange and this is one avenue we can use to raise national revenue.
One again congratulations to the President and all health personnel for this great achievement.
