COVID-19 FUNDS AUDIT INTENSIFIED

By NATION REPORTER

THE Auditor General’s office has intensified real time audit of Covid -19 resources due to increased funding from the Treasury as well as both financial and non-financial donations from well-wishers.

Auditor General, Dick Sichembe said the heightened risk associated with the spike in the Covid-19 cases in the country had resulted in increased funding.

This is contained in a statement issued by Head of Public Relations at the Auditor General’s Office, Ellen Chikale.

Dr Sichembe said the spike in the Covid-19 cases had resulted in increased Covid-19 funding from the Treasury as well as both financial and non-financial donations from well-wishers.

He said the current real time Audit included the Health Sector’s resilience to Covid-19, the Vaccine roll out; and the Economic Stimulus Package.

Dr Sichembe urged all the multi-sectorial players to effectively play their part in managing the current wave of the Covid-19 and to utilise the resources prudently.
