WATCH: Dr Moyo speaks on SADC crisis meeting over Covid-19

By ZBC Reporter
HEALTH ministers from the 14 SADC member states have convened an emergency meeting in Tanzania to discuss a coordinated regional response to the coronavirus.
SADC Ministers of Health are currently meeting in Tanzania to discuss and agree on relevant actions to harmonise and co-ordinate regional preparedness and response to the coronavirus.
The meeting is being held at the backdrop of confirmation of four more cases in South Africa bringing the total number of cases in that country to seven.
Speaking from Tanzania, Zimbabwe’s Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr Obediah Moyo said the potential spread of the disease in the region will pose a social, economic and security threat, hence the emergency ministers’ meeting.
The Africa Centre for Disease Control has since established an African taskforce for coronavirus, a continental platform to help countries coordinate their efforts across the continent.
So far, nine African countries have recorded 80 confirmed cases of the disease.
