Latest Zimbabwe coronavirus patient travelled to France


Zimbabwe’s 25th coronavirus patient is a 29-year-old woman from Harare who returned from France on 15 April and was placed on mandatory quarantine and was only diagnosed positive on Saturday.

The Ministry of Health said it tested 225 people yesterday and all were negative.

It has so far tested 2 851 and only 25 are positive. Three of them have sic died and two have recovered.

The ministry also said one of the patients reported under Manicaland was a returning resident from the United Kingdom with a Mutare address but is currently under mandatory isolation in Harare and has therefore not been to Mutare since the return.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa yesterday extended the national lockdown to help curb the spread of coronavirus by two weeks to 3 May.
