Linda Mtoba Outraged By The Price of Some Food Items Going Up In The Middle of a Pandemic. Everyone is trying everything they can to try fight coronavirus. Wearing protective gear, sanitizing of hands, drinking hot fluids, steaming, social distancing are some of the things that can reduce one’s risks of contracting the virus.
Food items like Lemon, ginger, onion and garlic are some of the things many swear by when it comes to fighting the virus. Unfortunately as Linda Mtoba has noticed, in some instances when the demand is high, the price also goes up. The price of these items have significantly gone up and some people cannot afford them.
This has left the talented actress and TV host unimpressed because underprivileged people are going to struggle to get them. If it becomes a issue of affordability, it will mean the poor will be at a higher risk of contracting and even dying from covid-19 related complications.
“The price of lemon & ginger is up, so basically the poor can’t afford what is meant to be one of the “cheapest” way to help themselves against Covid,” Linda said.
