President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said that Zimbabwe will weigh on whether to continue with the national lockdown or relax the regulations.
He made the remarks after his tour of some suburbs in the capital Harare on Sunday. He visited Mabvuku, Tafara, Kuwadzana, Mufakose, Budiriro, Glen-View and Chitungwiza. The president said:
I wouldn’t want to prejudge our decision. We are going to review the situation. If we think that it is containable, we may go back because it has its own socio-economic impact.
So, we have to weigh the possibilities of relaxing or continuing at the end of 21 days. But, what I can say is, currently, I am very happy with the response of our people.
Zimbabwe is on Day 7 of the lockdown which was imposed to stop the spread and transmission of the novel Coronavirus.
According to official reports, nine (9) people have so far tested positive for the virus and one of the cases has since died.
There are mixed feelings over the lockdown. Some citizens and businesses are already feeling the heat of the lockdown and are appealing for the relaxation of regulations while others are saying safety first, no compromise.
