Zimbabwe has recorded its 8th coronavirus death after a 21-year-old female died in a coronavirus facility.
The Ministry of Health and Child Care says the deceased was from Harare Province, had no travel history and tested positive for the virus today adding that she had co-morbidities.
Co-morbidity means more than one disease or condition is present in the same person at the same time. Conditions described as comorbidities are often chronic or long-term conditions.
Meanwhile, 5 more people recovered from the virus today bringing the total number of recoveries to 181.
The tragedy comes when some members of the public are now showing complacency especially following the relaxation of lockdown regulations weeks ago.
The number of confirmed cases this Saturday rose to 698, a development that comes as South Africa has since Friday been deporting more Zimbabweans for violating that country’s immigration laws.
The government and doctors this week warned against complacency saying the country was not out of the woods yet.
The World Health Organisation, on the other hand, warned of the second wave of the virus.
