Govt Releases 34 People From Quarantine, 27 Had Not Finished Mandatory 21 Days
The Ministry of Health and Child Care has released 34 people from quarantine upon their completion of the mandatory 21 or 14 days.
The development was announced by the Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Senator Monica Mutsvangwa who said that those who had completed 14 days in quarantine centers would self-isolate at home for the remaining days. She added:
Today five returning residents from Mozambique were quarantined at Rowa Training Centre in Mutare Rural, and in Victoria Falls, at Mosi-Oa-Tunya High School, 45 returnees were yesterday placed under quarantine.
The government recently reduced mandatory quarantine days (at quarantine centres) to seven citing the inadequacy of resources to cater for the welfare of those quarantined.
Health experts say that the 21-day quarantine which is derived from interpretations of outbreak data, past and present is also based on the estimated incubation period of the virus in a human host.
They also say coronavirus symptoms may appear between two and 10 days after contracting the virus, but it may be up to 24 days in some instances. Testing may also be falsely negative if the test is obtained too early.
Mutsvangwa said health officers in the provinces would follow up the 27 who had completed 14 days only.
