This comes barely a day after Minister of Health and Population Jappie Mhango announced that Malawi has registered another case of Covid19 taking the tally to 71 cases Nation wide.
Mumba further Said Government needs to Empower Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) so that they can be able to reach out to communities with educative information such as preventive measures of the disease.
“My advise to the government is empower local authority and CSOs to be at the centre of this epidemic what is more crucial as of now is for people to know the information about covid 19 something which government is not doing information is power lets people Malawians know these information politician have failed us” Said Mumba.
Mumba also lamented that currently, the Country is facing a lot of challenges in the healthy Sector and if the Virus is not Contained in time, a lot of people will suffer due to the pandemic.
So far 3 people have died while 24 others have been discharged after receiving treatment.
