From The COVID-19 Deaths Recorded So Far, Most Of Them Are People Who Died At Home – ZDHR

Zimbabwe Doctors for Human Rights (ZDHR) secretary-general Norman Matara has said the number of people testing posthumously for COVID-19 is increasing which signifies that people are dying of COVID-19 at home, Newsday reports.

This was revealed as the renowned physician was speaking to BBC, Dr Matara said:

We are witnessing more cases of people diagnosed with COVID-19 after a post-mortem has been done. So, from the number of people who have died, most of them are people who are dying at home.

People are being forced right now to go outside their houses to look for money so they can feed
their families. They are also being forced to go out and look for clean water. So social distancing is not practical, and that is why we are seeing cases rise

The healthcare system is in tatters at the moment. Just last week, we witnessed seven babies die out of eight deliveries, because there were no nurses to monitor women giving birth.

The number of COVID-19 deaths recorded in Zimbabwe stands at 102 as of yesterday. COVID-19 cases have breached the 4500 mark as 4572 cases were recorded over the weekend.
