]Malawi has seen a spike in virus pandemic  cases by over 40% with the number of confirmed cases rising to over 3300. The country has also recorded 91deaths.

The sharp rise in the number of cases has been attributed to the June 23 court-sanctioned presidential election re-run where thousands of Malawians ignored health measures and social distancing rules to attend political rallies.

Experts also blame people, who returned from foreign countries mainly from South Africa responsible for the spike in pandemic cases. As of July 12, more than 1,900 people arrived in the country form, South Africa.

But the government must reconsider the funeral protocol for covid-19 victims. The WHO clearly says that there is no evidence that a dead covid-19 body can spread the virus. We are burying them like carcasses which is not our culture.

May he rest in peace 💔🙏. Covid19 is worldwide transmitted disease and is killing without seeing who the person is thewhere abouts, bringing back people from foreign countries or our background political disagreements more especially 2019-2020 where by Malawi needed change of governing will not solve any problem now 👋.
