Atupele calls for urgent plan for Malawi to jab millions with Covid vaccine

United Democratic Front (UDF) president Atupele Muluzi has called for an urgent plan for  mass-vaccination programme, aimed at protecting millions of people from Covid-19 within months.

Atupele: Ignore unofficial results being circulated

In a race against a faster-spreading variant of coronavirus,  the UDF leader says on his Facebook wall that, government should make sure that the country is ahead of the game in terms of planning and thinking.

“Now is the time that we must pull together all our collective networks and have a plan and roadmap for COVID-19 vaccinations. We stand ready to help,”  says Muluzi, a former minister of health.

In his national address on Sunday, President Chakwera said the key to defeating the virus  pandemic is changing private and public behaviour.

“I know that keeping away from a funeral of a loved one to avoid getting infected is hard. I know that keeping  students in boarding schools when learning has been suspended is hard, but we must do hard things to beat this pandemic. I know that wearing your mask the whole time you are outside your house is hard,  but we must do hard things to beat this pandemic.

“I  know that working from home, working in shifts, and disinfecting your work place every week can be hard, but we must do it to beat this pandemic,” said Chakwera.

Chakwera says Malawian must do hard things to beat this pandemic.

“These preventive hardships are far better than sending our loved ones to a hospital that does not have enough bed for oxygen.”

Chakwera continued “our best chance to  defeat this virus is to bring the number of new infections down to zero so that we can spend our energy and resources on treating those who already have the virus.”

Why doesn’t he ask daddy to donate just half of the K1.7 billion golden parachute that he awarded himself? That could buy a few vaccines, masks, and oxygen tanks.

BUT BECAUSE THERE IS MONEY COMMING IN BILLIONS, THEY LOSE THERE SENSES AND CONCENTRATE ON ALLOWANCES AND COVID RELATED BUSINESES WITH GREED IN THEIR EYES. SHAME.
WE NEED INDEPENDENT MINDED MEDICAL PROFESIONALS IN MALAWI TO COME UP WITH THE ANALYSIS OF PROS AND CONS OF THIS PURPORTED VACCINE.
MEDICAL COUNCIL OF MALAWI WHERE ARE YOU?
DONT JUST GET DRUNK WITH ALLOWANCES AND OTHER. BENEFITS AND NEGRECT THE NEED TO CHECK THIS VACCINE
WHY ARE OUR NEIGHBOURS TANZANIA NOT RUSHING ON THE COVID ISSUES
DO WE HAVE BETTER DOCTORS IN TANZANIA???

You and your fellow vaccine conspiracy theorists need to stop barking, barking, barking, and barking some more…….for nothing!!

Don’t take the vaccine if you don’t want it.

Any suggestions where the government can get this vaccine from? Just over the week end Pfizer and AstraZeneca told the EU, they will not meet their supply target. Where will Malawi be on the waiting list considering a lot of western countries pre ordered six months ago?
