HIV infected Zambia MP Princess Kasune Zulu contracts Coronavirus. She has been an AIDS activist and a member of opposition United Party for National Development.


More than 15 Zambian MPs have contracted Coronavirus, according to health minister Chitalu Chilufya.


Parliamentary sittings have been suspended indefinitely.


Ms Zulu told the BBC that she was not surprised by the test results, partly because Zambia’s parliament had initially proceeded holding sittings notwithstanding the rise in coronavirus numbers.


“I guess one saw it coming given the laissez-faire attitude we have in Zambia towards the health guidelines and seeing that at parliament we had continued meeting in person when we should have carried on business from our homes via virtual systems,” she said.


“The lack of adhering to guidelines, the politicisation of issues and lack of leadership at a critical time have fuelled the surge in the of Covid-19 in Zambia.”


She encouraged people with already existing health conditions to adhere to medication in the era of the coronavirus.
