Mutoko District set to respray Malaria Hotspots

Mutoko District is facing a double tragedy as the 2020 Malaria season has coincided with the period where Zimbabwe as the rest of the World is grappling with the fight of Covid-19 pandemic.

In a meeting with the Mutoko District Health Executive (DHE) it was revealed that respraying of hotspots was set to be rolled out this week. Acting District Medical Officer (A/DMO) Dr Prince Mangwiro said volunteers were on the ground mobilizing to start respraying in the areas that had presented as Malaria hotspots for the District.

“We are embarking on this exercise as a mitigatory measure in light of the increases in cases this Malaria Season. This season has seen a sharp rise to 14806 from 4756 in 2018 and 5817 in 2019 respectively. People have been doing a lot of outdoor activities such as market gardening as source of livelihood. 12 deaths have also been recorded this 2020 hence the fight to recline the sharp curve. Some of these deaths come from religious objectors who refuse treatment as well as obstruct treatment for their church members,” he said.

District Environmental Health Officer (DEHO) Chapata Madakudya, reported the district to have set out for the Malaria season with mobilisations and sensitization of the community for the Indoor Residual Spray (IRS). As per IRS culture there is chemical rotation for each malaria season to ensure that the Anopheles does not grow resistant to the chemical hence the use of Fludora Fusion and OPs last season and DDT and OPs for the respraying, he said.

In light of the current increase in Malaria infections the District has also conducted investigations to assess if the chemical on the walls is still effective.

“Results obtained this week showed that the chemical sprayed during IRS is still on the walls and has 100 % mortality. Further to this we are currently conducting a susceptibility test to investigate if the mosquito has not grown to be resistant to the sprayed chemical of which results are to be expected in two weeks time”, said Mr Madakudya.

In preparation of the respraying Mr Madakudya said they will be strict observance of COVID-19 prevention guidelines for the teams right from transportation to the camps to ensure physical distance is maintained.

“The lorry that usually carry +/-50 people will only carry 16 people and they will no longer be housed in tents as is the norm but we have organized classrooms that are spacious,” said Mr Madakudya

The DHE has been resourceful in sourcing of food stuff for the spraying team from community leadership and is grateful to the coinceited efforts that Mutoko district has demonstrated
Nineteen wards surrounding health facilities like Katsukunya,Kapondoro,Mushimbo, kushinga and Nyamuzuwe among others are set to be sprayed.

Aixs Solutions donates a health wellness machine to the First Lady

Thrive Health Solutions, a subsidiary of Axis Solutions, a company which is into provision of medical equipment yesterday donated a wellness machine dubbed the “Health ATM” worth US$30 000 to the First Lady, Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa, who is also the Health Ambassador at Zimbabwe House.

In her acceptance speech, the First Lady hailed the health wellness machine owing to the number of functions it can perform and the speed with which it produces the results.

“The Health ATM is a reservoir of functions that makes it easier for a person to be diagnosed with the results being instantly available …it is multifunctional in that it tests viral load, Body Mass Index (BMI), blood pressure and sugar levels,” said Amai Mnangagwa.

The donation of the Health ATM will go a long way in ensuring that disadvantaged people would now access quality health care.

“I am well informed that this revolutionary medical equipment has no geographical barriers and I am ecstatic because disadvantaged people can now access quality health care,” said the First Lady.

The Axis Solutions donation came at an opportune moment the country is in need of medical equipment in detecting viral diseases among a host of other diseases.

“As an Ambassador for Health, this has come at a time when we needed this most.

“It is my greatest hope that this machine helps as many people as possible in early detection of viruses and other diseases, chief among them being the current Covid-19 pandemic which has ravaged the entire globe,” said the First Lady.

Handing over the machine to Amai Mnangagwa, Axis Solutions Managing Director, Burayayi Brian Mukudzavhu thanked the First Lady for promoting cancer awareness across the country, a factor which triggered them to donate the machine.

Above the screening of various conditions, it allows teleconferencing with doctors who can then write prescriptions which can be printed out there and then.

Meanwhile, the First Lady also received four solar vegetable driers from Youth in Mining Managing Director, Aaron Mupandawana. He noted that they came up with the drier to augment the First Lady’s efforts to promote preservation of perishable foods such as vegetables and fruits.
