The number of people who under surveillance for Novel coronavirus symptoms keeps increasing, Health and Child Care Minister Obadiah Moyo said.
Speaking at an inter-ministerial meeting on Zimbabwe’s reaction to the global outbreak last week, Minister Moyo:
So far, the figures of the people who are entering the country from infected areas keep going up because we have a lot of travel taking place.
Yesterday (Tuesday) we were talking of 506 visitors who are being monitored in the country and today (Wednesday) the figures have gone up, we are now at 741 people being monitored for coronavirus in Zimbabwe.
While the coronavirus pandemic has killed at least 811 people, almost all in China, and infected more than 35 000 globally, Zimbabwe and the Southern African region have no confirmed cases of infections.
