“President Chakwera is shocked with the death of chief Sichinga. But let me talk about Covid-19 as a survivor. Don’t be cheated that it is fake. You need to visit the hospital when you developed the related signs. If you follow the doctor’s advise you will not die. You will be a strongest ever like me,” he said.

Can u see on the Nyasa pic at the funeral of the Chief there is no social distancing, no masks, no limited number etc.
So what can u say when the virus attacks the humans?
People are not taking the heed. They are stubborn indeed.
