The deadly Covid-19 virus has emerged at Mzuzu University, with four cases reported, raising fears that the disease would infect more individuals and reach levels seen in the country in 2020-2021.
“I wish to inform you all that we registered four cases of covid-19 at our university clinic as at midday of 14th June 2022” in part reads a memo by the University’s registrar, Yonamu Ngwira.
The memo added:
“The covid-19 positive cases registered include 3 female students and 1 male student. The students are all in stable condition and they have proceeded on self-isolation” before urging the entire Mzuzu University community to “adhere to precautionary measures that have been put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19 virus.”
Of late, Covid-19’s sting appears to have worn off in Malawi, since the virus’s spread has slowed substantially. At its peak in Malawi, the Covid-19 virus killed numerous Malawians of all socioeconomic classes, including two cabinet ministers in the Chakwera-led administration, Sidik Mia and Lingson Belekanyama.
