Harare- Zimbabwe has extended the Covi-19 lockdown by a further 14 days.
In a state of the nation address, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said the country was yet to meet World Health Organisation (WHO) standards for the lifting of the lockdown which was due to expire at midnight on Sunday.
“WHO gave us conditions to lift any lockdown. We are yet to meet those requirements. We can only lift when the transmission of the virus is under control. WHO has warned against lifting of lockdowns in all countries,” said Mnangagwa “Guided by the above, Government has decided to extend the national lockdown by another 14 days up to the 3rd of May 2020,”
President Mnangagwa said the Government will continue to consult people in order to lessen the burden on citizens.
“We will continue to try and find ways to make the burden a little easier for all the people. We continue to consult people as the second republic is a listening administration” he said
The extension comes on the heels of more Covid-19 cases which to date stand at 25.
There is a likelihood of more cases as there are citizens coming from worst affected countries.
