Health minister clears air on Zika virus

MINISTER of Health Chitalu Chilufya.

ZAMBIA has never recorded a Zika virus outbreak and reports in some sections of the international media and social media platforms are not true, Minister of Health Chitalu Chilufya has said.
And the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has started the process of engaging the international media that reported that Zambia is under threat of the virus.
Dr Chilufya said at a press briefing yesterday that insinuations that the country is at high risk of the disease are unfounded.
“Let me state that the World Health Organisation excludes Zambia from the Zika virus disease belt,” he said.
