The Ministry of Health has announced 102 new coronavirus cases, registered in the past 48 hours.

This means the country now has recorded a total of 203 cases including 4 deaths since April 2, when first cases were announced.

According to the Ministry, 92 of the new cases are from the buses that repatriated Malawians from South Africa.

7 positive cases have been confirmed from samples that were collected from truck drivers and other travelers at Mwanza Boarder. 3 other positives have also been confirmed in Lilongwe.

The sharp rise in the cases has sparked criticism from the public who believe that it could have been avoided.

Many are of the view that the careless handling of Malawians returning from South Africa was deliberate in order to halt preparations for the fresh presidential polls.
