As the fight against Coronavirus is promising in the country, Mzuzu prison has exciting news as the facility has recorded more recoveries of the virus, authorities confirmed.
According to Mzuzu prison spokesperson McBeth Wasambo 16 out of 19 Covid-19 patients have tested negative.
He said that the remaining three patients are still sick but are on their way to recovery.
Wasambo, however, noted that the prison is overcrowded and it is difficult for inmates to observe social distancing.
He said the prison is supposed to keep 500 inmates but now it is keeping about 800 inmates.
âThe biggest challenge that we are now facing is social distancing. COVID-19 requires people need to be staying one meter apart but now with the current situation itâs impossible to have or maintain social distance,â he said.
Malawi has recorded 5704 Coronavirus cases and there have been 178 deaths and 3764 recoveries.
