Kwekwe City Council (KCC) has converted a local beerhall in Mbizo high-density suburb into a Coronavirus screening centre.
This was revealed by Acting Town Clerk Lucia Mkandla during a recent meeting with Midlands Provincial Affairs Minister Larry Mavhima. She said:
We had to upgrade Garandichauya beerhall into an infectious diseases control hospital.
We have none here in Kwekwe and in the event of a disaster, we will find it difficult to control.
We, therefore, had to commission the former Garandichauya Beerhall into an infectious disease control facility.
Kwekwe Mayor Angeline Kasipo said KCC has budgeted ZWL$1.8 million it received for devolution for the revamping of the screening facility.
Zimbabwe currently has only two screening centres in Harare and Bulawayo for coronavirus.
