Senator Monica Mutsvangwa 

CURRENT lockdown restrictions are set to be tightened through the introduction of localised lockdowns to curb the increasing cases of Covid-19 which have now surpassed the 1 000 mark. Cabinet this Tuesday also directed that the re-opening of schools be deferred pending a review of the situation, while the writing of examinations continues.
“Cabinet approved that current lockdown restrictions be tightened, while localised lockdowns are introduced in hotspot areas and any further re-opening of the economy be halted,” said the Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Senator Monica Mutsvangwa during this week’s cabinet briefing.
