Kariba records the first confirmed positive case of COVID 19. The man (patient) works for Delta in Harare and was visiting his family in Nyamhunga when he experienced COVID 19 symptoms leading to tests being conducted on him. The sample was taken to Chinhoyi last week and the results came out positive yesterday. The patient is isolated at his home. This should be a wake-up call to the small town that has one TM supermarket and ZUPCO buses that travel linear from Nyamhunga, Mahombekombe to Heights, and back any complacency will see the entire community infected by the lethal disease.
The District Medical Officer Doctor Godwin Muza confirmed the development.
Meanwhile, the District Medical office and Municipality of Kariba health Department will from this morning be doing contact tracing to identify and isolate all those the patient might have been in contact with. The public is urged to remain calm and do all that was advised by health authorities.
