The Embassy of Ireland has so far supported the Malawi Governments Ministry of Health’s efforts through UNICEF with a total of K2billion roughly USD1.8 in the fight against COVID 19 since the first case was reported in the country in April 2020.

On Wednesday, Embassy officials paid courtesy call to Karonga district where some of the Irish funds were invested in strengthening point of entry COVID 19 screening and isolations at Songwe border.

The delegation led by Lilian Chaguluka has also visited the district hospital where their support was channeled towards the operations of the Emergency Treatment Unit (ETU).

The Delegation also met members of various government departments that operate at Songwe border under the joint border health committee which is chaired by MRA’s Victor Msesa.

According to Msesa, for the past three months, Songwe border post has disinfected 4,504 vehicles, screened 8, 070 immigrants and carried 21 COVID 19 vaccinations.

The border officials have since cited lack of a PCR COVID 19 testing equipment and unavailability of an ambulance on site for referral emergencies as key challenges in the fight against COVID-19.
