The Zimbabwe COVID-19 Taskforce has announced tighter measures as it readies itself to ensure the 21-day lockdown announced by President Emmerson Mnangagwa is strickly adhered to.
During the lockdown, all intercity public transportation will cease operating while ZUPCO buses will only operate intercity, but must carry only up to 50 percent of their regulated capacity.
Private vehicles shall not carry more than two people at a time, unless there is a valid reason.
Freight transportation, which included cargo planes and delivery trucks, shall continue with their operations but will not carry any passengers.
According to the Taskforce, the country’s state universities have been tasked to manufacture soap, sanitizers, face masks, and medical gowns.
According to the Taskforce, social intervention programs will be directed at vulnerable groups that include the elderly.
Zimbabwe has so far done less than 200 tests and 7 have tested positive for the coronavirus. One person died last Monday.
The 21-day lockdown, which seems to stem the spread of the coronavirus, kicks off at 00.02 hrs Monday (tomorrow).
Members of the army will be at hand to assist civilian authorities to enforce compliance. – Zimbabwe Voice
