The deceased was admitted at Westend Hospital in Harare where it was discovered that she was positive for coronavirus. She eventually died in the early hours of Wednesday.

The Minister of Health and Child Care Development told reporters on Wednesday that contact tracing of the case is in progress.

There have always been fears that the virus would spread to rural areas where health institutions are more backward and less-resourced compared to those in urban areas.
