Frontline health care workers have received due recognition for their role in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic from the Chamber of Chinese Enterprises in Zimbabwe.
The Chamber of Chinese Enterprises in Zimbabwe had a first-hand experience of the role played by frontline health care workers after visiting Parirenyatwa Group of hospitals COVID-19 treatment centre this Thursday.

Said Liu, “It is important to recognise the very big role that our health care frontline workers are facing.AS China we wish to extend our appreciation to health care staff for their heroic efforts during this crisis.”
The visit by the Chinese nationals comes after their country donated Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccines to Zimbabwe.
