Anglican Diocese of Eastern Zambia Bishop William Mchombo has advised people to be careful with some men of God who may claim to have cure for coronavirus (Covid-19).
And Bishop Mchombo has appealed to government to ensure that health workers are well protected from the disease.
Bishop Mchombo said this is not the time to be ignoring measures being put in place by health experts because coronavirus is real.
Bishop Mchombo who described some men of God as “certain Papas” said these people including some traditional witchdoctors should not mislead people that they have certain powers that can cure Covid-19.
He said that people should not take advantage of the situation to make quick money, stating that this is the time for people to work together in order to contain the deadly disease.
And Bishop Mchombo said that health workers need to be protected because it’s possible for patients to pass the virus to them or them passing the virus to people seeking treatment in the hospitals.
