Miriam Chonya MP, Kafue Constituency writes
“Colleagues, I would urge all of us to keep our ears to the ground regarding the lockdown and the way forward from what the Minister will officially guide.
At the time of his departure late evening, the indications were that tomorrow the lockdown may be lifted to allow people to prepare themselves for another lockdown to facilitate more testing.
Meanwhile, testing will continue tomorrow in the clinics and at the hospital.
During the second lockdown, that is when testing maybe done from homes. Meantime, people are urged to continue observing the ” safe” practices coz Covid is real and very much present in our town.”
