Covid-19 presidential taskforce rules out 3rd wave of pandemic in Malawi

The Presidential Taskforce on Covid 19 has ruled out chances that the country would be hit by the third wave of the pandemic.

Dr Charles Mwansambo”: Continue following Covid-19 preventing measures.

The positivity rate rose from 9.7 percent on Thursday to 11.2 percent on Friday.

On Saturday it dropped to 7.2 percent after 42 people tested positive.

Cumulatively, Malawi has recorded 33,216 cases including 1,093 deaths.

Over 28, 000 people have now recovered bringing the total number of active cases to 3,881.

Authorities have indicated that the country will ease Covid-19 restrictions when the positivity level reaches less than 5 percent.

Secretary for Health Charles Mwansambo has encouraged the public to continue following Covid-19 preventing measures.

Meanwhile, players in the local private sector are optimistic that the Covid -9 vaccine will help to improve the business environment in the coming months.

Companies have been brought to their knees, with some shutting down following the adverse impact of the pandemic on the economy.

Restrictions on international travel and movements as well as the trimmed workforce in offices and industry have greatly affected productivity.

General Manager of Old Mutual Pension Services Company Limited Tawonga Manda acknowledges having been hit by the pandemic.

Manda is however hopeful of the much needed economic resuscitation, with the coming in of the vaccine.

I would like to follow the events as they unfold. I would love best if the TASK FORCE on COVID would be convincing people to understand the motive behind what other media is saying that COVID – 19 is like a scarecrow so that people will feel the need to be vaccinated.
It is this vaccination that mRNA is targetted on to contol human lives. What is the country’s benefit with this or is it globalization agenda?
Can we be educated on such directions please?

You should have said that you will try by all means to avoid the 3rd wave. You CANNOT say for sure that you will avoid the 3rd wave based on current indicators. Some European countries like France & Italy are being hit by 3rd wave already. Your government officials are continuously travelling to Europe for conferences that are online to make allowances, you think they will avoid COVID. What about immigrants from SA.

Will the Government this time stop Malawians returning from South Africa when the country is hit by the third wave for us to rule it out? Is this forecast realistic or a joke? The virus is likely to be imported from Tanzania, taking this country to a third wave.
