Fear has gripped the country’s old capital city, Zomba following a break out of a strange disease.
Zomba District Health Officer (DHO) Gift Kawalazira said they are currently working on identifying the disease.
“We are doing all we can to contain the disease,” said Kawalazira.
According to Kawalazira, those suffering from the disease are showing symptoms similar to Typhoid.
The situation has meanwhile forced some schools in the district to send students back home following the occurrence of the strange disease.
So far 206 people from St Lukes in Malosa have been diagnosed with the disease.
