Pilirani Phiri, spokesperson for Vice president Saulos Chilima has refuted social media rumors that the vice president has tested positive for Covid-19.
Today, January 12 social media was awash with reports that the state vice president is not well as he has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
Phiri has said Dr. Chilima is immediately leading in the task that President Lazarus Chakwera has given him as per the announcement in the special address to the nation a while ago.
“The Vice President is well and fine. Actually, he has already taken up the directive that the President has made on the ministerial task-team to review Covid 19 guidelines in order to respond effectively to the pandemic,” said Phiri.
In his address, Chakwera directed that the ministries of Health, Homeland Security, Education, Civic Education, Local Government, Justice and Information led by the Office of the Vice President to review Covid-19 guidelines and recommend possible amendments for an effective fight in the fight against the pandemic.
There have lately been social media suggestions that Vice President Chilima is nursing a Covid-19 attack. His office says this is inaccurate.
