STAFF WRITERS©️ THE government warned yesterday that more people could contract the lethal coronavirus in the country due to the huge number of Zimbabweans returning from abroad, the Daily News reports.
“The issue of returnees and deportees is where our biggest problem is. We are likely to get a lot more cases from returnees from Botswana and South Africa … the biggest source of our anxiety.“The challenge is that we cannot stop residents from coming back. But so far the highest number of positive cases is coming from that group.“It is an issue for all of us. So, there is serious need for us to double our testing and contact tracing efforts,” Moyo told the parliamentary portfolio committee on Health and Child Care.“I can already see, as the results of the tests done so far are coming in, that the majority of the (positive) results point to the returnees,” he added.
