Minister Kandodo down with Covid-19

Minister of Labour Ken Kandodo has been diagnosed with coronavirus  (Covid-19).

Kandodo: Treated at hospital over virus symptoms

He is admitted to Kamuzu Central hospital, according to sources in government.

It is said to be a “precautionary step” taken on the advice doctors.

Cases of the pandemic have begun rising again in what the presidential taskforce on Covid-19 says is a second wave of the global pandemic.

On Monday, 41 new cases were recorded in the country bringing total active cases to 168.

In the past 10 days, the country has registered a total of 116 cases.

On Thursday alone, the country recorded 47 new cases while on Friday there were 10 new cases.

This is contrary to recent statistics where the country was registering less than five cases per day.

Khumbize Kandodo Co-Chairperson of the taskforce said on Saturday it is worrying that the country has started registering an increase in the number of cases.

According to Kandodo the rise in the number of cases is as a result of the pandemic’s resurgence in neighbouring countries which Malawi share borders with.

Kandodo has since appealed to the general public not to relax in adhering to Covid-19 preventive guidelines.

Meanwhile Kandodo has told members of the press that government is yet to  make a decision on whether to adminster Covid-19 vaccine or not on it’s citizens.

Currently, some countries are trying different Covid-19 vaccines on its people.

And according to Chiponda issues of vaccine are very sensitive as such at an appropriate time government will come up with it’s official stand on the matter after making thorough consultations.

In this article, we are only reading the name Kandodo, Kandodo. Are these Ministers related? I think it’s only in Malawi where we can hear this.

No not.

Poland had twin brothers as president and vice president. The Miliband brothers in the British Labour Party. The Mutharika brothers in the DPP government. Ivanka and Donald Trump in the US government. Henry Mussa and wife in the DPP government. JZU and Mama in the Kamuzu Banda government.

It’s happening everywhere in the world.

Government, please do not procrastinate over the issue of vaccination. Izi sizochita kufuna “wide consultation.” The vaccine should be made available. Covid is real

Don’t wish other people to die. That’s why most of the youth can’t be leaders because they are not mature yet. If I may say Wakufa Saziwika. You may die young because of your lifestyle. Learn to respect Senior Citizens

No talk of vaccine because at the moment, you will not going to afford it. We usually rely on this rich countries, unfortunately they are the worse hit so they will after themselves first.
You have people like Mkaka shaking hands and not wearing any mask. These are the people who will bring the new strain into the country.

Beware of the vaccines as they’re still on trial basis and categorised according to type of people to be involved as guinea pigs 💉
