Zambia Has Recorded 91 New Cases, 8 Deaths

Zambia has recorded 91 new cases (out of 2,741 tests), 8 BIDs and 83 recoveries in the last 24hrs.

This connotes a 3.3% positive rate.

Total deaths stand at 345, cumulative confirmed cases stand at 15,549. Total recoveries stand at 14,682 leaving active cases at 522. 

On a not so positive note, the Zambian health system is being compromised by some individuals opening up unregistered pharmacies to the public, exposing unsuspecting public to dangers of adulterated drugs.

Five people of Solwezi District in North- Western Province have been arrested for operating a Pharmacy without a Certificate of Registration in contravention of Section 14(1) of the Medicines and Allied Substances Act No. 3 of 2013.

These include; Charity Sinambili aged 61years, Daniel Mumba aged 39years and Maggie Saidi aged 21years. Others are; Thresa Muyomba aged19 years and Mercy Muzhinga aged 32 years.
