Commenting on the development, the chairperson of the Zimbabwe Association of Doctors for Human Rights (ZADHR), Fortune Nyamande, said:
It is a positive development that we are having more recoveries and relatively few deaths from Covid-19 in Zimbabwe, compared to other worst affected countries.However, the underlying factors to these statistics are not yet fully understood as more research and evidence is needed.The number of deaths is positively correlated to the severity of the cases and in our situation, we have mostly mild cases and hence fewer deaths.Most severe cases which required hospitalisation and intensive care did not have encouraging outcomes and we need to rectify that.
