The Beitbridge Border Post was on Monday temporarily closed for decontamination after five employees of the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) tested positive for COVID-19, amid unconfirmed reports that the cases had risen to 12.
The development was confirmed by Zimra spokesperson Francis Chimanda who insisted that only five workers had been infected.
You may have heard the border will close between 2 pm and 8 pm.
