Similar handovers are set for Gweru, Mutare and Masvingo general hospitals next week.
“I would like to thank every one of the over 8 000 individuals that donated towards the fight against the spread of the coronavirus.
“Such a broad-based unity of purpose gives me great hope that, with the help of God, we can beat this disease and win the fight against this epidemic in our country,” Mboweni said in a statement.
“It will not only go a long way towards meeting a pressing need, but it also sends a clear message to all the healthcare workers out there that we, Zimbabweans, are together with them in this fight, and they should keep up the good work,” said Mubaiwa.
“We appreciate the generous hand extended to us as Wilkins Hospital.
“The donation could not have come at a better time than now when we definitely need constant supplies.
“As frontline health workers, personal protective equipment are crucial tools of trade for us and with correct and consistent use, the risk of contamination is reduced.“Most importantly, we commend the generality of Zimbabweans for responding to the fund mobilisation call by Econet Group in the common fight against Covid-19,” said Bara.
