Zambia sex workers tracing covid19Zambian sex workers are playing useful roles in the country’s quest to tracing persons who have been infected with coronavirus.

Sex workers in Zambia are helping to trace people with covid19 after a surge in new infections at the border town of Nakonde.

According to the country’s health minister, Chitalu Chilufya, sex workers have helped to locate 76 of 85 reported new cases in the northern town of Nakonde.

Chilufya said most of those cases were either sex workers or lorry drivers as infections continue to increase in the Southern African nation.

“Sex workers have been very co-operative and they are giving us all the leads we want,” Mr Chilufya said adding that “The situation in Nakonde remains grave, and the president is concerned.”

Zambia has confirmed 267 Covid-19 infections, with seven deaths.

Last week, President Edgar Lungu announced the reopening of restaurants, casinos and gyms after a month-long shutdown to enforce social distancing measures.
