Speaking at NatPharm warehouses in Mutare yesterday, Health and Child Care Minister Obadiah Moyo said Government has availed medicines for Cyclone Idai victims.
He said the medication that had been donated from Tanzania and the United Arab Emirates and other agencies had already been delivered and the Ministry was working to ensure that it reached affected areas. Said Moyo:
Kits have been prepared and ferried to affected areas. We are happy that we have three helicopters that are transporting the medicines from Mutare to the affected areas. We have cholera kits from WHO, IV fluids, antibiotics, antiretroviral tablets, TB medication, diabetes, and hypertension medication. We also have some oral cholera vaccines left from the exercise we carried out, so if the need arises, we will administer the vaccine. We also have family planning and delivery kits for expecting mothers in place.
