The Secretary for Information Nick Mangwana has dismissed rumours circulating on social media purporting that he announced another lockdown.
If you see this message circulating on WhatsApp, please ignore. It’s someone’s poor idea of a joke. It’s not true.
He then attached a photo of the purported message which reads:
Secretary for Information Nick Mangwana has announced that ordinary Zimbabweans will not be allowed to enter the Central Business District with immediate effect.
Mangwana said in an effort to mitigate the spread of the deadly Coronavirus, only essential workers will be allowed to access the CBD.
“Yesterday, 133 positive cases were registered. There are some cases of deaths which are awaiting test results on whether Covid-19 was the cause. Security is being tightened to ensure only essential services can be allowed through to CBDs. We apologise for any inconveniences.” Mangwana said
Coronavirus cases have been on the increase in Zimbabwe lately and this has triggered fears of a second wave of the virus.
