"Zimbabwe Is Not Only Ill-Prepared, It Is Also Denying That It Needs Help"
A NewsDay editorial has opined that Zimbabwean authorities are not honest with the nation when it comes to the coronavirus.
It criticises officials in the Health sector of not telling the nation how ill-prepared the country is to deal with the pandemic.
The concern is raised when the novel coronavirus is rapidly spreading across the world and closer to Zimbabwe.
The panic also comes when other countries are closing their borders, suspending some events while some are putting their countries on lock-down to prevent the spread of the virus. Part of the editorial reads:
So why are we panicking, well it’s pretty obvious that people can now tell that Zimbabwe is not only ill-prepared but is denying that it needs help to set up structures that will ensure that should there be a case it is dealt with.

It also adds that while some countries have encouraged self-quarantine, nothing seems to have changed in Zimbabwe as even visitors are still “pouring in with minimum restrictions.”
NewsDay adds that Zimbabwe should be concerned after the United States whose Health system functional has “effected the European travel ban, indirectly admitting that the disease was now becoming too difficult to manage.”
