By A Correspondent- Returnees quarantined at Harare Polytechnic College have revealed that there is no water at the quarantine centre lamenting that they are not being tested for COVID -19 despite being quarantined for two weeks.

In an exclusive interview with ZimEye, the returnees said it was not logical for government to quarantine citizens returning from different countries including Botswana, South Africa and Namibia but fail to test them.

The returnees requested for an official government statement regarding why they are not being tested for the past two weeks.

Said the returnees:

“We are told that there are no test kits and the other officials do not give us a satisfactory answer saying they are not in a position to comment.”

The returnees also said the sanitary facilities at the Harare Polytechnic College were deplorable.

He said:

“We have no water, no sanitisers and the bins are not collected. We are afraid of catching the virus from here.

The government has done well on food but we are worried that nothing is being done regards testing us.

We are just being mixed with new arrivals who are not tested and our fear is that we will contract the virus becuase there is no due diligence regards those that are coming here after us.”
