Minimise Going To South Africa - Government
The government thought the Bulawayo Provincial Affairs Minister Judith Ncube has urged citizens to avoid going to South Africa in the wake of the coronavirus which has killed over 3500 people worldwide, The Chronicle reports. The minister’s warning came after South Africa recorded 7 Coronavirus cases as of Monday the 9th of March 2020.
Speaking to the publication, Ncube said:
As Bulawayo we first have to observe that this coronavirus is there, it’s very real. We should take precautionary measures that have been laid down by the Ministry of Health and Child Care. We should wash our hands, avoid shaking hands among other things.
We should also minimise on our travelling to the neighbouring country as part of measures to ensure that we remain safe from the virus. It is my prayer that the virus does not reach Zimbabwe
Meanwhile, the president banned government officials from all international travel and discouraged Zimbabweans from travelling outside the continent of Africa.
