CIMAS Receptionist, Workmates Test Positive For Coronavirus
A CIMAS Medical Aid receptionist on Thursday tested positive for coronavirus during the institution’s routine and random testing.
The organisation says contact tracing and testing subsequently revealed that other members of staff had been exposed to the virus as they had been in the same work area with the staff member who had tested positive.
In a statement, the company’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mr Vulindlela L. Ndlovu said the case was subsequently handed over to the COVID-19 Rapid Response Team and contact tracing began. He said:
We also proceeded to test staff in that facility as well as other staff who share transport with her and twenty one more have tested positive for the virus. While the source of the infections is unknown, common factors among those who tested positive is that they all shared transport and/or shared workstations, computers, or telephone handsets.
He added that all the workers who tested positive for the virus are in quarantine after being referred to the COVID-19 Rapid Response Team and the Harare City Health Department.
