The Zambian Government says it is not considering going for a total lock down in Lusaka City and other affected areas following the recorded cases under the second wave of the COVID-19.

Health Minister Jonas Chanda explains that going for a total lock down would negatively affect the economy.

Dr. Chanda says Government is on top of things and doing everything possible to address the situation with various cooperating partners.

The Health Minister said this during a ZNBC special interview with Information Minister Dora Siliya.

And, Siliya reiterated calls for Zambians to continue adhering to health guidelines to avoid contracting the disease.

She said all Zambians have been affected and that it is time to work together to fight the deadly disease.
