Medi said this on Friday  when the  Department of Immigration and Citizenship Services held  an emergency meeting at Sunbird Mount Soche Hotel in Blantyre on handling the deadly Coronavirus, which has now spread to six African countries, including neighboring South Africa.

Department of Immigration and Citizenship Services  has decided to impose stricter controls at its border checks, including demanding from travellers coming from countries with a coronavirus outbreak – China, Italy,  South Korea, Japan and Iran – to disclose their health status upon arrival.

During his address, Medi warned the officers to desist from corruption and check the previous countries the immigrants have travelled to before allowing them to enter into the country.

So far, the virus has killed over 3 000 people worldwide with over 90 000 infections.
