CITIZENS’ CASUAL APPROACH TO COVID 19 WORRIES MQHZ

Written by on July 16, 2020

A Non Governmental Organisation that promotes access and improvement of quality healthcare in Zambia has expressed disappointment with the way the general public is casually taking the fight against the corona virus.

Medical for Quality Healthcare in Zambia (MQHZ) reveals that according to the survey conducted in the last one week in most markets and public places of   Provincial centers, reveals   that people have stopped masking up and practicing social distancing.

MQHZ Media and Advocacy Director Francis Kangwa observes that the careless behaviour by citizens is dangerous and a fertile ground for spreading and contraction of the Corona virus.

Mr Kangwa has since urged the general public to revert back to mandatory masking up and practicing physical distancing.

He says a check at both Levy Mwanawasa Hospital and UTH has painted a worrying trend as there are a lot of patients on oxygen due to respiratory conditions and COVID 19 related infections.

He has expressed fear that if the population will keep treating the pandemic casually, positive cases will increase and put more burden on the health sector and the economy at large.
