The coronavirus curve in Zimbabwe has been flattening in recent months but is starting to rise again triggering fears of a second wave.

There has been complacency around the country with the majority of the citizenry flouting coronavirus regulations including the wearing of masks and maintenance of social distancing.

As a result of new cases that are being recorded, some government officials have hinted that the government might consider reimposing the lockdown to curb the spread and transmission of the virus.

Another lockdown will likely deteriorate further the economy that is already on a downward trend for the past 24 months.-ZBC
