Breaking: Zimbabwe Covid-19 Lockdown Extended By 2 More Weeks … Some Sectors Relaxed

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has extended the country’s national lockdown by two more weeks, with other sectors now relaxed.

Mnangagwa said Zimbabwe is on level 2 of the lockdown which will see industries, the mining sector, retail shops opening but with restrictions.

President Mnangagwa said the extension and relaxation of some sectors is a fine balance between preserving people’s lives and trying to sustain the country’s economy which has suffered a slump, due to the abrupt lockdown which meant there was neither production nor generation of income.

Highlights from President Mnangagwa’s speech.

All people should wear masks, outside their homes. This includes homemade masks as well.
