“Government continues to make substantial strides in enhancing national preparedness against the pandemic.
“In our hospitals, isolation centres have been established and additional health facilities identified. Meanwhile, more tests are being conducted. The number of hospital beds devoted to patients continues to increase, in readiness for a possible upsurge.“I equally applaud researchers, inventors and developers from our universities and technical colleges who continue to work on various materials needed by our hospitals, clinics and the nation at large, in fight against Covid-19,” Mnangagwa said.
“The measures we have taken remain in place and appear to be paying off. However, the approaching winter season brings with it greater vulnerabilities. We cannot afford to be deceived by the small numbers of infections but we must continue to scale our preparations. We are not out of the woods.“Our surveillance and contact tracking systems against both imported and likely in-country infections are being improved. We are operating in a whole country emergency mode with each and every one of us having a role to play.”
