Avenues Clinic Nurse Tests Positive For Coronavirus

A nurse at Avenues Clinic in Harare recently tested positive for COVID-19 after she attended to a patient who had been admitted in the casualty section and later tested positive for the disease.

The Avenues Clinic Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Searchmore Chaparadza said the nurse tested positive after taking a Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. He said:

Management would like to advise stakeholders of a COVID-19 incident that occurred within the Accident and Emergency Unit of the Avenues Clinic. One of our nursing staff members tested positive for COVID-19 after taking a PCR test.

The staff member, whose results were received on 22 July 2020, whilst on self-quarantine, was exposed to the virus after attending to a patient who later tested positive for COVID-19. In the meantime, the hospital has traced all contacts for quarantine and tracing.

Chaparadza added that the hospital continues to enforce various measures to ensure the safety of all stakeholders.
