Roadport allays Covid-19 fears
ROADPORT, a transport hub in the capital, has dismissed reports that an afflicted passenger had collapsed at the terminus due to Covid-19.
Since its outbreak in China late last year, Covid-19 has claimed at least 15 000 lives across the globe and more than 350 000 people have been infected by the virus.
“Information on social media indicating that a Covid-19 afflicted passenger collapsed at the terminus is not correct. We are pleased to announce that Harare Roadport management has taken several measures complementing national and worldwide efforts to contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic,” reads part of the statement from the officials.
“There will be decongestion of buses traffic at the Roadport 4th Street terminal by relocating the regional long distance buses to High Glen Shopping Centre in Willowvale.
“Posters with standard Covid-19 prevention measures as advised by the ministry of Health and Child Care and WHO will be put up,” reads the statement.
The terminus will also promote hygiene among travellers and disseminate Covid-19 prevention measures on buses during travel.
