Several schools and colleges in Harare have been turned into isolation centres to hold hundreds of Zimbabweans who are returning from neighbouring countries and further afield.
Deputy Secretary in the Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare Clifford Motera revealed that they had prepared a number of quarantine centres around the capital. He said:
We have Belvedere Teachers College, Queen Elizabeth School, Prince Edward, Allan Wilson, Harare Girls High School and Morgan ZINTEC.
There is also another batch of 18 people who were being quarantined at Courtney Hotel who will be discharged any time depending on the recommendations by officials from the Ministry of Health and Child Care.
Once the officials from the ministry give them certificates to leave, they will be released.
Returnees who were coming home aboard Ethiopian Airways will be taken to ZIPAM quarantine centre, Motera said.
