Increase in Covid 19 cases led to the enforcement of existing measures and this was said during a cabinet meeting, on Tuesday.
Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services Monica Mutsvangwa said curfew is still in place for non essential workers between 10pm and 6am including bars, night clubs and weddings are still limited to 50 people and church services 100 people.
“No new measures have been implemented government said all regulations are already in place and must be followed and maintained to prevent the rise of infection rate.
This came as a result of positive cases reported at learning institutions in Midlands after the reopening of schools.
Few weeks ago schools were reopened as usual using prevention equipment such as masks scanning of temperatures and maintaining social distance as per government instruction, though some schools implement new strategies where students attend lessons 2 days per week so as to reduce the spread of Covid 19 but the cases are still rising each day.
So far 90 cases were recorded local transmissions and one death.
Zimbabwe recorded 9398 Covid. 19 positive cases, 8 297 recovered while 274 died.
