Parliament Nurse Didn’t Die Of COVID-19, Clarifies Govt


The Ministry of Health has clarified that National Assembly of Zambia nurse Jean Makeleta did not die of COVID-19 as routine Coronavirus tests came out negative. Zambia National Public Health Institute (ZNPHI) director general Professor Victor Mukonka said on Wednesday that the social media reports tying Ms Makeleta’s death to COVID-19 were not true. “The Ministry of Health is saddened by the untimely death of one of our very committed gallant worker who was stationed at National Assembly clinic
She fell ill last Friday but before that, she took her COVID-19 test routinely which the results were negative. So on Friday, she was reportedly not feeling well, probably she was feeling tired. Then Monday, she called in requesting to take a day off as she was not feeling well,” Prof Mukonka said.
