Families Of Deceased Health Workers Traumatised By COVID-19

Families Of Deceased Health Workers Traumatised By COVID-19

Families of doctors and other frontline health personnel whose relatives succumbed to COVID-19 are still grieving over the loss of their loved ones.

In his speech during a medical awards ceremony held in Harare at the weekend to honour living and deceased medical professionals, Zimbabwe Medical Awards Trust board chairperson Josephat Chiripanyanga said COVID-19 wounds would take time to heal.

Chiripanyanga said the COVID-19 pandemic has claimed the lives of many nurses and 22 doctors in Zimbabwe. He said:

Families of frontline health workers are still nursing wounds after losing their loved ones to COVID-19.

It was difficult to convince the families of doctors who died, whom we want to honour to attend the awards ceremony.

Relatives of our COVID-19 heroes are still in grief and they are not opening up that much.

That is why most of them could not come because they are saying the awards are opening their wounds.

Living heroes in the medical profession, among them, decorated eye specialist, Solomon Guramatunhu and leading paediatrician Bothwell Mbuwayesango were recognised at the event.

Zimbabwe has recorded a cumulative total of 4 713 COVID-19 deaths since the emergence of the deadly virus in 2020.

Mapanzure gvt high school in mvg could not finish mathematics exam due lack of stationary.The was no graph papers and the pupils left the questions unanswered because of limited graph papers.Some of the students are talking of reporting to zimsec in Masvingo town.This is because the administration is corrupt and they eat exam fees and could not buy the stationary.Basure the siniour teacher and the gvt high school told the pupils that Zimsec was supposed to provide the stationary not the school which is incorrect.Mapakomhere high school nearby had enough graph papers for the exam about 4 graph papers each which is correct. Chauraya head of Mapanzure gvt high school is said to be tyrant and running currupt administration.Everyday he goes to town Masvingo using school resources but he could not buy the stationary for the poor pupils.Chiweshe the deputy head of Mapanzure high School is believed to the who was in charge of the paper 2 mathematics.I think Pindula news and the Anty corruption council of Zimbabwe should visit the school to investigate the issue because most of the stack holders and community are complaining of the currupt adminstration of Mapanzure high school.
