On 3rd April, the Guardian reported that: “In Malawi only 20 people a day can be tested for the virus, and there are just 25 intensive care beds and seven ventilators in the country of more than 18 million people. Since February, however, the Government has been racing to curb Covid’s arrival.”
The virus arrived relatively late, but the country as a whole remains very vulnerable. On Tuesday, 14th April a nationwide lockdown was announced, to come into effect from Saturday, 17th April. During the lockdown, all non-essential businesses and services were to close and non-essential movement was prohibited. According to reports from GardaWorld, Canada, all movement into and out of the country was suspended and a curfew was in effect from 19:00 to 06:30 (local time).
Ndi Moyo Palliative Care Centre aims to continue its work in delivering care to those who need it. However, we now need to raise more money to cover the costs of PPE (surgical masks and gloves, head gear and disposable gowns among other items) due to prices trebling on the local market due to rising demand.
