Government says there have been an increase in number of positive COVID-19 cases in the country.

Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Honarable Monica Mutsvangwa revealed this during the Post Cabinet Briefing held this Tuesday in the Capital.

“Cabinet notes, with concern, that there has been an increase in COVID-19 positive cases over the past two weeks.”

In respond to the insurgents of the pandemic the government reassures the citizens of the measures that have been put in place to counter the spread.

“To guard against a second wave of the COVID-19 outbreak, Government through the Ministry of Health and Child Care, is strengthening surveillance and health information management in order to ensure an efficient and effective system to counter such an eventuality.”

Awareness campaigns will be another relevant tool to curb the diseases from spreading and will increase public knowledge on COVID-19 preventive measures.

“Furthermore, awareness campaigns will focus on community engagement using community leaders with support from sub-national structures to foster community responsibility and enforce COVID-19 preventative and precautionary measures.”
