COVID-19 Update: 15 people test positive for Coronavirus as cases skyrocket in Zimbabwe


Zimbabwe on 4 June 2020 recorded 15 more coronavirus cases taking the total number of officially confirmed cases to 237 including four deaths.

The Ministry of Health reports that all the new cases are returnees from South Africa who are all isolated.

Matebeleland South is now second to Harare in terms of confirmed cases after recording 8 new cases yesterday taking the total number of cases known in the province to 40 while Harare has 97.

A surge in the number of cases in Matebeleland South is attributed to the fact that the province hosts 2 of Zimbabwe’s major ports of entry in Beitbridge and Plumtree.

Beitbridge itself has half of all cases confirmed in Matebeleland South.

The number of recoveries has risen to 31 while the number of active cases is now 202.
