Zimbabwe has recorded 12 new cases since President Emmerson Mnangagwa extended the national lockdown under Level 2 indefinitely with the total now at 56.

The first three cases have also been reported in Matebeleland South leaving only two provinces, Manicaland and Mashonaland Central, without the virus.

Five people tested positive yesterday, one who was returning from Botswana, another in Harare and three illegal immigrants from Malawi who were intercepted and are now in isolation at Beitbridge waiting for deportation to their home country.

The country has now tested 35 112 people.

There are now 34 active cases, but there is no active case in Matebeleland North after the only patient there recovered. The number of those recovered remains at 18.

Deaths remain at four, more than a month after the last one.
