The Health Ministry has explained why it slashed Zimbabwe’s COVID-19 cases from 40 to 34 and said it was due to faulty tests, as all the 6 cases tested negative after some retests, The Standard reports.
This was posted in the Ministry’s updates which reads in part:
The ministry would like to report that results of the quality assurance process instituted following an unusual clustering of six cases that were reported as positive from Harare on April 29, 2020, have confirmed that all of them were negative for Covid-19
The ministry’s recent update says there are no new positive cases since the 29th of April.
