Meanwhile, officials from Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals said they were still compiling figures on the number of doctors who have resumed duties by Monday.

Mpilo Central Hospital chief executive officer Dr Solwayo Ngwenya said more doctors were returning to work though he could not give the exact number of those who had resumed their duties.

More than 80 junior doctors are reported to have returned to work on Monday across the country, with another 282 expected to join them by January 2020.
