I find this kind of reporting of covid-19 cases unprofessional, and scaremongering….
If 58 is the total number of all confirmed covid-19 cases since the pandemic reached Malawi, how many of those are still active cases and how many have been cured?

Responsible reporting gives a balanced picture so that the public can make informed decisions…

Going forward can you report like this,
58 total confirmed cases, 30 recovered, 25 active cases all with mild symptoms and 3 dead.

Thanks!!
