By Own Correspondent| Twenty-eight Zimbabwean returnees tested positive for Covid-19 on Friday, raising fears that quarantine centres are now “hotspots”.

All the returnees are from South Africa.

Cumulatively, returnees now account for well over half of Zimbabwe’s 265 cases.

Zimbabwe recorded its first Covid-19 case in March 2020, and figures remained relatively low for nearly two months.

However, almost 200 cases have been reported in the last two weeks.

Of these cases, 88 were recorded over the last five days.

Twenty-six were confirmed on June 1; three on June 2; 16 on June 3 while June 4 and 5 accounted for 15 and 28 cases, respectively.
