A health expert has predicated a drop in cholera cases this year in the country due to covid-19 protocols.
Maziko Matemba, one of the leading commentators on health matters said the cleanliness which goes with COVID-19 preventive measures will push the cholera cases down.
“This is because, hygienic practices have been heavily enforced in most public spaces,” he said.
During the 2018-2019 cholera season, the country registered 26 cases with one death due to cholera.
In the period of 2017-2018 there were 939 cases and 32 deaths.
Other health experts say that the government initiated clean-up campaign would also help bring down cholera cases in the country.
President Lazarus Chakwera launched the clean-up campaign last month in Chinsapo, Lilongwe, the epicentre of cholera epidemic last year in the country.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
