Zambian President Says People Should Live With Coronavirus As They Have Done With Malaria & AIDS

Zambian President Edgar Lungu has seemingly given up in the fight against the coronavirus after he “prematurely” relaxed key measures that were put in place to fight the killer virus.

In his national address on Friday, President Lungu announced the reopening of gyms, cinemas, restaurants and casinos saying it is time Zambians learnt to live with the new normal.

President Lungu also ordered pupils in examination classes to return to school.

The announcement was made after Zambia had recorded 14 new Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours, bringing the cumulative total to 167. He said:

The “new normal” means living with COVID-19 just like we have lived with other diseases such as malaria, HIV and Aids, and tuberculosis, provided we adhere to the prescribed health guidelines, regulations and certification for COVID-19.

… In embracing “the new normal-living with COVID-19”, let us continue to vigorously fight this disease and not become complacent.
