Farai Dziva|Government has increased the number of security forces in the country’s towns and cities as Covid-19 cases continue to rise.

Below is the Health Ministry’s latest update on Covid-19:

Three (3) cases tested positive for COVID-19 today. Two (2) cases are returnees from Botswana who both tested positive on the day of quarantine and 1 is a Harare resident with no history of travel.

Today 1 379 RDT screening tests and 466 PCR diagnostic tests were done. The cumulative number of tests done to date is 34 707 (19 623 RDT and 15 084 POR).
To date the total number of confirmed cases is 51: recovered 18, active cases 29 and 4 deaths since the onset of the outbreak on 20 March 2020.

The Ministry also urges members of the public to stay at home and avoid going to crowded places because where people come together in crowds, it is more difficult to maintain a physical distance of at least 1 metre.
