He said it is the responsibility of every Citizen to play their role in the fight against the pandemic.
Mr Lubumbe said the anticipated fourth wave is deadly and the Government is doing is their best to ensure lives are protected.
“ Am a living testimony when it comes to Covid-19, I would have died by now if not for the vaccine, I was the victim of the pandemic and I stayed in the hospital for two weeks and I witnessed how people died in Nchanga General Hospital. So let’s all get vaccinated because prevention is better than cure,” he said.
Mr Lubumbe has urged the communities to take the Covid-19 seriously and follow the guidelines put in place by the Health Authority.
