Zimbabwe Relaxes COVID-19 Regulations

Zimbabwe Relaxes COVID-19 Regulations

The government has relaxed COVID-19 regulations by lifting the midnight curfew citing “satisfactory progress” in the containment of the global pandemic.

Speaking during a post-Cabinet media briefing this Tuesday, acting Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister, Jenfan Muswere confirmed the policy change after today’s cabinet meeting.

He said business hours for the hospitality industry are now from 8 am to 3 am the following day. Said Muswere who is also the Minister of ICT, Postal and Courier Services:

While enforcement of Covid-19 regulations must continue, the curfew which is currently running from 12 midnight to 5:30 am has been lifted.

The curfew was introduced at the height of the pandemic as a precautionary measure to control the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Part of the reasoning behind abolishing movements at night was to minimise social contact during the hours with minimum authority supervision.

As of 20 June 2022, Zimbabwe had 254 919 confirmed cases, including 247 649 recoveries and 5 536 deaths. A total of 6 264 867 people have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

Meanwhile, neighbouring South Africa is also considering lifting COVID-19 regulations as cases and deaths have been declining in recent weeks.

South Africa is the most affected African country with more cases and fatalities.

These stu_pid masks should be voluntary and not forced. They are not worn properly so cannot be effective anyway.
