Malawi Police have moved in fast to enforce Covid-19 preventive measures as the country has lost 12 people in the past 24 hours due to virus pandemic.
The police swift action in cities to enforce the covid-19 preventive measures follow a directive by the presidential taskforce on Covid-19.
The law enforcers ensured that all people in public places have masks on and also that all drinking joints are closed by 8pm.

The new Covid-19 strain is wreaking havoc across the globe.
Currently Malawi has 2067 active COVID-19 cases with 220 deaths.
