People have been urged to stay at home for the nation to curtail the increase in Covid-19 cases currently being recorded.
In a statement, national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said that it is not everyone who should be in the Central Business District urging people to be security and health-conscious in light of the increase in Covid-19 cases.
“The Zimbabwe Republic Police urges members of the public to observe that the country is still under Level 2 National Lock-down in order to manage the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Ass Comm Nyathi.
“Only essential services, businesses in the formal commercial and industrial sectors were exempted to operate during this period but the rest of the public should stay at home,” he said.
Meanwhile, 1324 people were arrested on Monday throughout the country for various offenses related to contraventions of the National Lockdown regulations, bringing the total cumulative arrests to 5o 729.
On the same date, four returnees escaped from quarantine centers and the cumulative figure of escapees from various quarantine centers in provinces across the country now stands at 157. Motorists yesterday formed a winding queue to pass through police roadblocks into town with some being turned back over failing to have exemption documents.
Pedestrians also were forced to leave the CBD and some shops without exemption documents were forced to close their doors leaving the better part of the CBD with few people as the Government makes efforts to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Commuters faced transport challenges to ferry them home as most motorists and buses were thoroughly checked at roadblocks.
