The development comes when coronavirus cases recorded in the country continue to rise. On Wednesday, the Minister of Health and Child Care Development, Dr Obadiah Moyo announced that a fourth person had succumbed to the virus.

In total, officially announced coronavirus cases are now at 28 and some have the conviction that the number could rise if authorities embark on a rigorous contact tracing, isolation and testing exercise.
