Mutharika Worries Covid-19 is Being Treated Lightly


President Peter Mutharika is concerned with how the novel coronavirus pandemic is being treated in the country ahead of fresh presidential elections.

Mutharika said this via a prerecorded State of National Address (SONA) during the opening of parliament session in Lilongwe.

President Peter Mutharika says the unprecedented Coronavirus has affected the whole world.

He further questioned if it is recommendable to continue with preparations of holding elections in the country or protect people from coronavirus.

After nullifying May 21, 2019 presidential elections, the Constitutional Court ordered that fresh presidential elections should be held within 150 days.

After presidential candidates submitted their nomination papers to Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) political parties are seen on the streets campaigning defying government’s order of social distancing to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Meanwhile, the country has 394 case of coronavirus with 338 active case following 51 recoveries and 4 deaths.
