President Emmerson Mnangagwa Extends Level 4 Lockdown By 14 Days

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has extended the current level 4 lockdown by another two weeks as 80 per cent of new infections in the country are attributed to the highly infectious Delta variant


Addressing the nation on Tuesday evening from State House, President Mnangagwa said all lockdown measures will be enforced and the vaccination programme will be vigorously rolled out to communities. 

He said:

The plan to maintain the current Level 4 will make it possible for the immediate acceleration of the vaccination programme throughout the country.

The programme will now be taken to communities making vaccination easily accessible to these seeking this essential service.

The additional two million vaccine doses that were received this past week are enough to vaccinate a million people with each receiving the recommended two doses.

The plan is to immediately target one million people during this extended two-week Level 4 lock period.

Mnangagwa also warned people who deliberately flout COVID-19 restrictions by travelling at night to evade the ban on intercity travel.

Among other restrictions, during the current national lockdown, intercity travel, public gatherings, and sporting activities are banned.
