Speaking at the same event, Harare City Council deputy mayor Enock Mupamawonde said the gesture from the Chinese private businesses will go a long way in assisting the nation to be prepared to deal with coronavirus.
“We don’t know the impact Covid-19 will have in Zimbabwe with many vulnerable populations, a struggling health care system and many people unable to avoid high-density living conditions. But Zimbabwe is a resilient country and we are doing all we can to support the government and partners to prepare,” he said.
