Zvishavane Situation Worries The District’s Covid-19 Taskforce
Written by Yafm New on April 22, 2020
Zvishavane District Development Coordinator and head of the COVID-19 taskforce in the area Darlington Chokera says plans are in place to decentralise the distribution of basic commodities so as to de-congest the Central Business District.
A survey conducted by Great Dyke news today showed that hundreds of Zvishavane residents were queuing for basic commodities such as mealie-meal and groceries, paying minimal attention to social distancing. This comes at a time when the country has recorded 28 cases of the pandemic, including 3 deaths and 2 known recoveries.
In a telephone interview, Chokera said the situation is difficult to combat as people have to provide for their families.
He, however, said they are engaging the business community to ensure distribution of basic commodities in various locations so as to avoid the spread of the novel coronavirus.
