Government feels heat over Covid-19… as infections spike, returnees flee isolation centres
The president of the Zimbabwe Nurses Association (Zina), Enock Dongo, was among those who said temporarily closing the country’s borders was one of options that the government needed to consider.
The secretary-general of the Senior Hospital Doctors Association (SHDA), Arron Musara, said while shutting borders was an option for overstretched authorities, there was also need for balance to address the plight of many of the Zimbabweans who are returning home.
