Health Expert Urges Govt To Relax Lockdown

A local health expert has urged the government to consider easing the lockdown and reopening schools as the number of coronavirus infections and deaths continues to decline.

Medical and Dental Private Practitioners Association of Zimbabwe (MDPPAZ) president Dr Johannes Marisa also said people should not be swayed by misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines. He said:

Government is going to review lockdown measures from the current Level 4 and it is my belief that with events that are showing in the reduction of the number of cases, Government can actually ease some of the restrictions at the present moment.

We need to see the opening of schools so that our children at least can go to school.

He, however, indicated that preventative health protocols should remain in place and members of the public should be vaccinated so that the country achieves herd immunity. Added Dr Marisa:

Misinformation and disinformation should be completely eliminated so that our country stands in a very better position in terms of COVID-19 control.
