Zambia records 235 COVID-19 cases in last 24hrs

MINISTER of Health Sylvia Masebo has disclosed that the country has recorded 8 more cases of the COVID-19 Omicron variant.

Speaking at a media briefing, Ms Masebo said international travel remains the common risk factor with five of the eight having a history of recent international travel.
She said all the patients have a combination of common symptoms including headache, fever, cough, cold, general body pains.

“One also experienced abdominal pains. On a positive note, the first three individuals in whom the COVID-19 Omicron variant was detected have recovered and now tested negative to SARS-CoV-2. We can already see isolated incidents of increasing positivity in some provinces, with increases from 0.1% in previous weeks to now at 4%. It is no surprise as we anticipated this, considering that several countries globally are already experiencing a fourth wave,” she said.

Ms Masebo said increase in the number of cases in Central, Copperbelt, Luapula, Lusaka, North-western and Southern provinces is worrying and pointing to the likelihood of a fourth wave.
