Health Minister Jappie Mhango during media update

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)—As Malawians are back to their normal life style in the face of covid-19, the numbers of covid-19 cases are slowly but steadily creeping upwards with a latest record of five cases of the pandemic within the last 24 hours.

Minister of Health Jappie Mhango has announced the five more cases today during a media update of the pandemic in Lilongwe.

Three of the cases are from Nkhata-Bay while Blantyre and Lilongwe have registered one case each.

This has taken the number of those infected with the Coronavirus in the country to 63 of which 24 have recovered while three died.

Lilongwe remains the worst hit with 26 cases, including two deaths, followed by Blantyre with 16 cases and one death. Thyolo is third with nine cases while Mzuzu and Nkhatabay have three each.

Chikwawa, Mulanje, Zomba, Nkhotakota, Mangochi and Karonga have one case each.

Mhango said the ministry is working hard to increase the number of testing centres to reduce the turnaround time for the samples.

The cases of the pandemic are increasing at a time when politicians are conducting campaigns with no regard to preventive measures.
