The number of COVID-19 cases in Malawi has reached 33 after 10 new cases were reported Thursday.

The country’s Minister of health Jappie Mhango confirmed this Thursday morning in a daily update on the pandemic.

According to Mhango, the new cases are from the suburbs of the Capital, Lilongwe, where five other cases were also confirmed in the past 2 days.

“We had followed contacts and collected 24 samples and out of these 10 were confirmed to be positive,” said the minister.

The country has reported 3 deaths and 3 recoveries.

However, he said all the active cases are in mild conditions and that health workers are still on the ground to ensure that all contacts are followed up and that all active cases are managed.

The minister urged the public to continue with practising the preventive measures, which include staying home, and to consult a doctor when experiencing severe symptoms. Enditem
