Covid-19 kills 5% of Congo’s parliament

32 members of parliament in the Democratic Republic of Congo, or about 5% of the total, have died from Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic. ’The government reports 31,248 confirmed cases and 780 deaths, among them 32 members of parliament,’ said Jean-Marc Kabund, the first VP of the lower house of parliament. Masks are required inside parliament, but lawmakers frequently go without them.

I've seen what the Congolese share on their Facebook and YouTube, guess what I blame for this. FAKE NEWS!!!!! Many don't think covid-19 exists and they have a problem with fake quotes from world leaders and the WHO, including Trump saying he's investigating Bill Gates! https://eu.boell.org/en/2020/08/17/dr-congo-challenge-convincing-people-coronavirus-exists https://observers.france24.com/en/20200509-fake-news-covid-19-coronavirus-drc-congo-network As well as Africa's hydroxy-like unproven treatment... https://www.poynter.org/?ifcn_misinformation=congolese-researcher-jerome-munyangi-is-at-the-base-of-the-discovery-of-covid-organics
