The Zimbabwean government has announced that all visitors from countries which are affected by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) must hold valid medical certificates which show that they tested negative to the virus.
This was announced by the Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services, Senator Monica Mutsvangwa during a Cabinet briefing held in Harare on Tuesday.

This has prompted analysts to say that, contrary to what authorities’ claim, the country is not prepared to prevent and or contain the virus.
Some say that the country has no equipment to even test the virus that is why authorities have requested that all visitors bring medical reports.
Only recently, a suspected case was quarantined and released after authorities had concluded that she was negative of the virus. A week later, the woman was, however, re-quarantined after showing signs and symptoms related to those of the virus.
Authorities cleared her again and said they will continue to monitor her.
