“The nation is advised that the exemption mechanisms which were used during the first lockdown in 2020 will be reactivated with immediate effect,” she said.

“Given the above challenges, Cabinet has directed that the Treasury urgently releases the first tranche of $368.2 million it had committed to funding the enforcement of Level 4 lockdown measures.”

“This will reinforce the current efforts of containing the spread of Covid-19. Stiffer penalties will be imposed for violations of Covid-19 restrictions, including the withdrawal of business operating licences.

“As you might be aware, the entire country is now under Level 4 lockdown, following the surge in Covid-19 cases.”

Mutsvangwa said the worst affected provinces are Mashonaland West recording 2 114 active cases Monday, Mashonaland Central (2 957); Harare Metropolitan (1 041) Mashonaland East (847), and Midlands (848).
