Malawi’s Vice President Saulos Chilima has told Malawians to hug each other saying they will not get infected to corona virus.

Chilima who is also runningmate for the Tonse Alliance made the remarks at a campaign rally in Lilongwe on Sunday.

He said members of political parties under the alliance, which include Malawi Congress Party (MCP), People’s Party and Chilima’s UTM, should hug each other whenever they meet saying they are all brothers and sisters.

“When you meet a person in MCP colors hug them, when you find a person wearing a PP T-shirt hug them you are members of one family. You cannot catch any disease hug each other,” said Chilima.

Chilima’s advice is against guidelines by the World Health Organization (WHO) which is encouraging people to observe a distance of at least one meter with others and to avoid crowded places in order to prevent Coronavirus.

In Malawi, 70 cases of the coronavirus have been recorded and there have been three deaths and 27 recoveries.
