Ministry Of Health Responds To Reports Saying “Zim’s Coronavirus Testing Kits Condemned”

The Ministry of Health and Child Care in Zimbabwe has responded to a news headline by Daily News which says “Shocker: Zim Corona Testing Kits Condemned.

The Ministry said that the Minister of Health, Dr Obadiah Moyo had stated that defective kits were not used. Responding to Daily News’ tweet with the headline above, the Ministry said:

We appreciate your reportage @DailyNewsZim on Covid-19 news, but your screaming headline is giving false impression that all the tests which were done in Zimbabwe produced wrong results. Dr Obadiah Moyo clearly pointed out that defective kits were not used.

Other sceptical of the government however demand to know how the government managed to differentiate between defective and functional kits.

This comes when there are reports that some countries including Spain are accusing China of giving them defective kits which were not up to the task.

This also comes amid reports that about 14 percent of Chinese people that had recovered from coronavirus have tested positive again prompting some to say that perhaps the kits which initially tested them were defective.

  1. The minister of health is fast becoming an unreliable source of information with regards to covid 19 control. The president needs to have a look at the whole Task force with a view of appointing a new one headed by a more competant Epidemiologist who reports direct to the president. Moyo and his ministry would then be members of the Taskforce. The current task is too big for Moyo

  2. This Moyo guy is so disappointing. Netherlands, Spain all complained about those faulty kits and he is here saying the faulty ones were not used. Where is the evidence that the ones you used were not faulty? Like he is clearly not good at his job and we need a new health minister as soon possible!
