Malawi Covid-19 patients ‘well’ not needing hospital care – Health ministry

Ministry of Health chief of health services Dr Charles Mwansambo has said none of the 15 registred coronavirus patients require hospital care, saying they are “otherwise well.”

Dr Charles Mwansambo: No need for  hospital care for Covid-19 patients

The number of coronavirus cases had risen to 17 including two deaths.

But Mwansambo said the 15 Covid-19 patients  are “otherwise well”

In quotes reported by Nation on Sunday newspaper, Mwansambo said the 15 Covid-19 patients are “not needing any hospital care.”

Minister of Health Jappie Mhnago also said the first three people to be infected with coronavirus in Malawi have recovered after tests results showed negative.

The ministry of health however has appealed to people to continue abiding by the social distancing and hygiene rules to flatten the curve of infection.

Malawi has beaten the virus with zero hospitalizations. Whoever has given the Malawi gov’t money should take their money and ruuuuuunnnnn before it’s all gone by these m’fuckers. Especially now that they know they will be out of government after July 2nd, eeeeeish! I see them using every opportunity to clean out the government money. Prince of Thieves is so quiet. Is he also recovering from Covid 19?

Malawi belong to the citizens

In short,if no one has come open to say yes am suffering from covid-19.Then know that these government leaders have cooked the story.Because they believe that Malawians will buy it.I believe there is no convid-19 in Malawi.If there is then please people should come out and speak that they really suffering from coronavirus.Remember may fellow Malawians, politics is science and science needs people to think.

Very encouraging report but let’s not relent in observing the recommended measures to fight this pandemic.
Just to emphasize that the Committee on Covid 19 should be inclusive of other members of society and not partisan as it is now where members agree on anything for fear of possible reprisals.
I am sure we can defeat the scourge if we think and work as a Nation and not as politicians.

That’s why we are saying all along that u were lying to the nation and entire world that Malawi has Coviid 19 Patients. Malawi as it stands right now has not registered Coviid 19 Patients but once u lock down the nation then it’s when the government will import Coviid 19 and people will start dying thats the Conspiracy behind Coronavirus or Coviid 19. I pray that the Court after 7days should suspend the Lock down further till investigation has been taken about the so called Coviid 19 Patients where about . Don’t sacrify innocent poor Malawians to your Conspiracy… Read more »

A lot of ignorance in most comments below. The USA has about 800, 000 covid cases. Only a proportion of that is in hospital and a percentage of that need ventilator. In the UK, Prime Minister Johnson was hospitalised and yet some of his ministers just stayed home and recovered.

LOL!!!!! “To flatten the infection curve”. Mhango, chonde siyani copying language ya ena without knowing where to use it. The infection rate in Malawi is no where from peaking to be talking about flattening the curve.

What about those two who died, were they well enough not to need hospital too, or the fact is that we don’t have intensive care beds to take care of these covid cases?

Told one is a Burundian who died in two days time after his arrival in Malawi from Canada was a second death of the so called covid19 and the first death is an Indian born based in Malawi others they speaks her death was far from covid19 . My question is how did the Burundian traveled all the way from Canada with the corona virus to visit his family in Malawi and found positive on his arrival at the airport? could be a silly question.

Covid19 is real but in our case in Malawi we have different information given we never know. Only the doctors can convince you of that information given to the nation.
