Covid-19 cases continue rising in Malawi 

Some parents are expressing worry over a recommendation from experts to have all schools open on July 23 following the rising number of coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic  cases in the country.

Ministry of Health says 29 new cases have been identified  whichbrings the total active cases to 379 and total confirmed cases to 438.

The ministry says total number of tests conducted is 6423, whilst total number of recovered patients stands at 55 and total number of deaths remains at four.

This has alarmed some parents who feel their children would be insecure from the virus if the schools are open in July.

However, some students have threatened demonstrations if schools are not open in July.

This desease becomes worse jn winter. From now up to August expect a peak period where by no one will need his or her child to go outside the house. Corona is not HIV/AIDS where by you took ARVs. Come wait and see soon. Next week it will start raining and open the wave of coldness. Watch out

To the parents that expressing worry, do you have the time table for this virus? I say accept that the virus is here with us. Like HIV, we cannot deny our children their basic right to education. I don’t think our children are even safe outside school. What more with all these political rallies where even the university students proudly come in their numbers, including primary and secondary school kids attend these large gatherings. Surely, is it only at school, where you think your child can catch the disease? Surely not. Let us accept and live on.

This is imported Covid-19. Had the government had done their due diligence, and not allowing people from abroad to be mingling with the population during the incubation period of this virus this would have been stopped. Yes Covid-19 is real but the government is infecting its own people deliberately. You will see what comes next. You will cough all the Covid-19 money that you are pocketing. You will surely be punished.

Covid – 19 is here to stay. For a start however the government shld only allow those students on their final years to go to school. standard 8 , Form fours and 4th years.

Then some fool will say there is no Covid 19 in Malawi and that we should be hugging each other.

How many have died so far, 4 (some questionable though) and how many other people have died of other diseases in the same period, thousands.

The infection rate is still not all that alarming. It is 6.8 % of the total tests which I think is not all that big, The good thing is that we have had only one serious hospitalisation thus far. We should learn to stay with this disease otherwise it will ground us. Let us have a positive attitude and treat it as a normal flu while we are taking precautions for sure. As long as people are not dying like in Europe we can open up
