With cases of COVID-19 surging high, the powerful and the poor are affected equally as several nations in the list of COVID-19 positive patients have even included high-profile politicians, health officials, and even in some cases head of the states.
Adding to the list of politicians being tested positive for COVID-19 is Zambia’s Minister of Health Chitalu Chilufya. The piece of information was divulged by the government of Zambia on May 27.
Secretary to the Cabinet Simon Miti made the announcement during a COVID-19 update press briefing.
Simon Miti said that all Cabinet Ministers who attended a Cabinet meeting with the Health Minister recently will undergo tests for COVID-19.
The Health Minister has become the second minister that has been tested positive for COVID-19. Earlier last week, Information Minister Dora Siliya was tested positive for COVID-19.
