EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION: DR PARIRENYATWA
By Margaret Kamba
There's a significant drop in the number of covid19 cases following the recovery of many people.
As of the 23rd of August, at least 5930 positive cases had been recorded with 155 deaths confirmed. 4872 recoveries were realised bringing the total active cases to 903.
ZANU PF Secretary for Health Cde David Parirenyatwa says that there's need to exercise extreme caution despite the significant drop.
"We are happy with the increase in the number of recoveries and it is a good sign. However local transmissions are now common within the community and it is good to assume the next person is positive," Cde Parirenyatwa said.
"Being positive is not a death sentence but if you are found positive stay home and get the whole family tested.
"Good personal health, the use of the zumbani seems to be working and steaming. Lets be very careful of those people who have no symptoms showing. They are asymptomatic but are infectious because the incubation period is very long from two to 14 and sometimes 21 days."
Covid19 has devastated various economies killing many people globally.
