Local media portals have reported that Zambia’s health minister has tested positive for COVID-19. Dr Chitalu Chilufya becomes the second cabinet member to be infected. Chilufya has been at the forefront of the country’s fight against the virus among others giving press briefings on developments and announcing virus control measures.
Last week, information minister and government spokesperson Dora Siliya confirmed having been infected and explained that her decision to publicize the news was to help combat stigma.
