Zimbabwe’s Ministry of Health and Child Care, Dr Obadiah Moyo on Wednesday announced that the country had recorded a fourth coronavirus death following the death of an 82-year-old Mhondoro woman at Westend Hospital.

The Minister of Health and Child Care Development told reporters on Wednesday that contact tracing of the case is in progress.
