THE first case of coronavirus (Covid-19) has been confirmed in Zimbabwe after a man tested positive for the deadly virus in Victoria Falls late this evening.
The virus that has killed over 16 000 worldwide, since it broke out in China in December last year, has come to the shores of Zimbabwe.
From the evidence so far, the COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in ALL AREAS, including areas with hot and humid weather. Regardless of climate, adopt protective measures if you live in, or travel to an area reporting COVID-19. The best way to protect yourself against COVID-19 is by frequently cleaning your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub.
By doing this you eliminate viruses that may be on your hands and avoid infection that could occur by then touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.
The new coronavirus is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose.
Avoid close contact with anyone who is coughing and sneezing.
