GOVERNMENT has called upon community leaders to assist in the fight against COVID-19 by availing information on people who are illegally sneaking into the country.
This was revealed by the Deputy Minister of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare, Honorable Lovemore Matuke when he toured Rupangwana Quarantine Centre in Chiredzi.

Matuke spoke on the need for returning residents to follow COVID-19 quarantine procedures.

“We are aware at the same time worried about people who are sneaking into the country through illegal routes. Now is the time we work together to ensure those people are known and be quarantined because some might be having the virus,” he said.

The Minister of State for Masvingo Province, Ezra Chadzamira said the province is working on increasing the number of quarantine centres given the increase in the number of returnees.

“Quarantine centres must not be seen as prisons that’s why we are identifying suitable places for our people,” said Chadzamira.

Rupangwana Quarantine Centre currently has accommodated 19 returnees who were intercepted on their way from South Africa.
