Zimbabwe: Number Of COVID-19 Hospital Admissions Escalates

Zimbabwe: Number Of COVID-19 Hospital Admissions Escalates

Zimbabwe in the recent past recorded a surge in the number of COVID-19 admissions due to relaxed preventive measures.

During a post-Cabinet media briefing, Information and Publicity Minister, Monica Mutsvangwa, also stated that although there were reported COVID-19 cases in schools, they were not severe. Said the Senator:

During the week under review, the number of people in need of hospitalisation for Covid-19 increased and the bed occupancy rate increased from 2% last week to 3,2% this week.

A total of 81 new admissions were recorded during the week compared to 51 which occurred last week. No patient was admitted to the intensive care unit.

Latest developments:

There has been huge complacency in Zimbabwe as the Southern African country has been recording no death cases in the recent past.

With over four million people already vaccinated with at least one jab, some believe that the country has already achieved herd immunity.

Authorities are, however, urging citizens to take the booster jab to increase the chances of fighting the virus.

World Perspective:

On Monday, the World Health Organisation (WHO) urged countries not to declare victory over the coronavirus even though COVID-19 deaths had significantly dropped globally.

WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said it was too early for countries to declare victory as some countries still had high hospitalisation rates, adding that people should not be complacent.

Ghebreyesus said the threat of new and more dangerous variants remains very real due to transmissions.

He added that people should continue to protect themselves.
