Your figures (or let’s say statics) and reporting style) are debatable. How about the 9 who recovered? I thought we are reporting cases in Malawi?

Close the border and setup Quarantine & Isolation at the border directly. Tanzania is already doing that, if you enter their country you have to spend 14 Days quarantine at their chosen location before proceeding to Dar Es Salaam. Why not do the same here. Allowing people to come in from Tanzania and spread Corona all the way to Blantyre while stopping at many points to refuel, eat and piss is causing unnecessary infections!

Those two are Tanzanians not Malawians, and they can be shipped back to their country…
