Zambia has been allocated doses of the Johnson and Johnson Vaccines in addition to the COVAX facility.
Health Minister JONAS CHANDA says this is according to communication received from the African Vaccine Acquisition Task Team established by the African Union.
Dr. CHANDA says the local team is this week scheduled to hold a meeting to review the guidelines for the private sector and Non-State Actors who have expressed interest in supporting the vaccine acquisition.
He says engagement of private players will proceed cautiously with approved Organisations being represented.
The health Minister said this during the routine Covid 19 updates in Lusaka today.
And the country’s Covid 19 case positivity has continued to remain low with 62 cases out of 2 thousand 4 hundred and 38 tests conducted.
Dr. CHANDA says the country has recorded 2 new deaths from Northern and Southern Provinces while a total of 1 hundred and 60 discharges were recorded from both the Covid 19 isolation facilities and home management.
He noted that case admissions have remained stagnant with the hospitalized patients observed due to prolonged length of stay in health facilities.
The minister explained that the country continues to see variation in the positivity rate recorded across the country.
