Zimbabwe has since the end of March been under the coronavirus-induced lockdown which initially confined all members of the public to their homes.
Only those who were providing essential services were exempted from the lockdown albeit under certain terms and conditions.
The government later eased the lockdown regulations to allow the economy to partially resume operations while most of the activities remain banned.
