Dealing with misinformation on schools opening

The recent update on the opening dates for schools in the country has been met with a lot of fake news and misinformation. This sparked mixed reactions among members of the public.

The mixed rumors almost shaped a certain reality among citizens.

Zimbabwe’s Permanent Secretary of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Nick Mangwana took to address the speculating rumors on social media.

“Schools have not been ordered to reopen but parents and guardians have been advised to start preparing for the eventual reopening of schools in the future. Such preparations include preparing PPE supplies for their children and wards.”

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 Pandemic, societies have been entrenched with rumors surrounding the global health crisis.
