Nsanje, October 27, mana: Deputy Minister of Health, Chrissie Kanyasho has advised people in Nsanje to continue observing Covid-19 preventive measures despite a drop in cases being registered in the country.
Kanyasho made the call on Tuesday in the area of Senior Chief Malemia in Nsanje, appealing to communities to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
She said apart from wearing masks it is also important to be vaccinated before the Covid-19 attack.
“I am very glad to visit Nsanje district, I know that people in the district are practicing good sanitation in their respective homes to avoid communicable diseases but is also important to receive Covid-19 vaccine,” she said.
Kanyasho said Covid-19 has already claimed a lot of lives; hence, the need to get vaccinated.
She, therefore, asked people in the district not to get confused with some myths about the vaccine, saying she was an example herself because she has already received the Covid-19 jab, and nothing strange has happened.
“I am advising people in Nsanje to go to the nearest site where the vaccine is being administered in huge numbers to get vaccinated for the country to make positive strides to defeat the pandemic.
“There are different types of Covid-19 vaccine. We have just received another chunk of vaccine last weekend, so, I urge you to go and get vaccinated,” Kanyasho said.
She, therefore, assured people that government is doing everything possible to stop the infection of the coronavirus and that people should also take part in preventing the further spread of the disease.
