The fact was released to the journalists by the commission's local coordinator, the provincial governor Pereira Alfredo, who went on Sunday with other members of the multi-sectoral team to Cunhinga municipality to assess closely the conditions and reality of the area.

Pereira Alfredo pointed out that the local anti-pandemic commission is now assessing the situation and seeing the most appropriate measures to deal with the situation, at a time when the male Covid-19 positive is in one of the local treatment centres.

He reaffirmed that it was an imported case from Luanda, which was already under the control of the local authorities, and therefore reiterated the call for calm to all citizens.
