Malawi Police officer dies of Covid-19, pushes up death toll to 5

A police officer has become the fifth person in the country to die of coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and the first state security officer to succumb to the virus.

Cop is another Malawi Covid-19 statistic

A statement from State House says Rodgers Kazembe has since been buried with health personnel taking charge of the funeral and burial ceremony in line with burial guidelines of coronavirus related deaths.

Presidential spokesperson Mgeme Kalilani says President Peter Mutharika has since condoled the bereaved family and the Malawi police service over the loss of the senior superintendent.

“Professor Mutharika is therefore reminding all Malawians that coronavirus remains an increasingly present danger in our society having recorded 481 confirmed positive cases to date,” says Kalilani.

Kalilani says President Mutharika is urging all Malawians to be on guard and observe Covid-19 preventative measures.

The police officer was HIV positive and was on ARV for over 15 years. You have deliberately hid this information so that it appears that he has died of Covid 19. Covid just infected him at thd last munite. Fact is he has died of HIV. We know.

Whether he was HIV positive and on medication or having other diseases or not doesn’t mean that the person can not be infected with covid19 nope, this is why they are saying people with other healthy illness are at risks to be affected by covid19. Though we’re are not sure if truly the person died of any of the disease mentioned 💔💔😢 only the doctors knows. Covid19 is real let’s take all measures advised in its order to save lives.

Is the picture really showing the death you have written or is something else? Can a corona death be handled by such police officers with no PPEs? Tell us the truth

She had to doubt or completely deny something said from the mouth of those who are well-known in politicizing everything, so it’s still hard to believe anything said by anyone from the DPP camp

Other schools of thought say it was something else, not Covid 19. Whatever, MHSRIP.
