Harare- Zimbabweans returning from foreign countries have escaped from isolation centres across the country posing a great threat to curb the spread of Covid-19.
The country has reported 56 confirmed cases and four deaths since the outbreak of COVID-19, and the majority are Zimbabweans returning home.
All returnees are subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine, but some are reportedly bribing their way out or escaping from centres.
“A total of 118 people have escaped from various isolation centres throughout the country since the onset of the national lockdown. Some have been arrested while others are being sought by the police,” national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed
He said some returnees from neighbouring countries were using undesignated points of entry to avoid immigration formalities and quarantine.
The country has been under lockdown since March 30, but has been gradually easing the measures to help revive its troubled economy which is struggling with acute shortages of fuel, foreign currency, food, electricity and medicines.
