Listeriosis: What else are our authorities doing?

Dear editor,
THE issue of listeriosis outbreak has been a heated debate in the South African parliament.
Through their debates on the matter, the South African parliament yet again exhibited its vibrancy.
From the tone of the debates, it is likely that the firms responsible may be forced to compensate victims and even face prosecution.
What are authorities doing here in Zambia?
We appreciate the withdrawal of meat products linked to listeriosis but more needs to be done.
For instance, authorities should have established how many citizens may have consumed the meat products from South Africa during this period and subject them to medical examinations.
