THE Ministry of Health and Child Care has set up a COVID-19 National Response Centre at Parirenyatwa Hospital in the capital.

The centre has been set up following donations from Higher Life Foundation, Netone, Telecel and Econet.

The harmonised toll free number is 2019. The Minister of Information Technology Communication said the donation made to the Ministry of Health is meant to create a two way communication channel between patients and doctors without having to bring patients to the hospital.
