GOVERNMENT says the country is on the right path in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic despite the recent increase in positive cases.
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Zimbabwe has come up with a raft of measures to maintain low infection and mortality rates.
This was revealed by the Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Senator Monica Mutsvangwa while responding to questions without notice in senate this Thursday.
“We are glad that Zimbabwe is ranked in the top 7 countries that have managed to contain the spread of COVID-19. Since March 2020, government effected measures and the Ministry of Information embarked on awareness campaigns. I would like to also assure this house that vaccines are coming, we expect some to arrive this month,” said the Minister.
Senator Mutsvangwa also highlighted that government is making strides to bridge the e-learning gap between rural and urban schools.
“COVID-19 has affected our education system. The lockdowns and safety measures have necessitated online learning and rural learners are the most affected, however the country needs to move quickly in digitization and electricity supply to ensure there is connectivity in rural areas. The ministry of energy is also engaging solar power investors,” she said.
Zimbabwe is targeting to vaccinate 10 million people to attain herd immunity.
