As the scramble for Astrazeneca vaccine takes a centre stage across the country, latest report shows that 33 people have succumbed to COVID-19 in the past 24 hours bringing the death toll to 1,513.
Minister of Health Khumbize Kandodo Chiponda confirmed of the development in a statement made available to faceofmalawi.
According to Chiponda, the country has registered 372 new cases with 203 new recoveries.
Kandodo Chiponda has since urged people to go for vaccination which is currently underway.
“…although there is no contra-indication on the uptake of alcohol and the AstraZeneca vaccine, moderate use of alcohol around the time when one gets the Covid-19 vaccine shouldn’t affect the immune response,” reads part of a statement from the ministry.
She also urged Malawians to continue adhering to COVID-19 measures.
