Kafue may be locked down again


KAFUE may be locked down again, area member of parliament Mirriam Chonya has hinted.

On Tuesday, President Edgar Lungu ordered for Kafue to be locked down for mass screening and testing for the Coronavirus on yesterday.

During the lockdown in which residents had been asked to stay home, streets and public places were disinfected and more than 1,800 were expected to be seen by health officials.

But following yesterday’s activities, Kafue may face another lockdown.

Chonya said the lockdown is no longer in effect today to allow residents buy essentials in preparation for another lockdown.

“The indications were that that tomorrow (today) the lockdown may be lifted to allow people to prepare themselves for another lockdown to facilitate for more testing,” she said.

Chonya said testing would continue today in the clinics and at the hospital.

“During the second lockdown, that is when testing may be done from homes,” she said.

Chonya advised Kafue residents to continue adhering to the health guidelines given by health officials to avoid getting infected.

Since breaking out last December, the Coronavirus has infected more than two million people and killed over 120,000 worldwide.

Zambia has recorded 45 cases and two deaths.

Three of the Zambian cases are from Kafue with one death.

Authorities have not yet established how the cases reached Kafue.
