Stay safe from Covid-19 ,the fight isn't over yet.
HEALTH experts yesterday warned of a dire situation ahead as the third wave of COVID-19, which has reportedly hit the country in the face of threats posed by the South African and new Indian variants at a time when there are reports of a shortage in COVID-19 vaccines.
They said the country was headed for a peak in terms of coronavirus infections, which raised the need for citizens to get the COVID-19 jab to prevent infection.
Neighbouring South Africa moved to level two lockdown after experiencing a surge in COVID-19 infections in the past weeks, while reports of infections in Zimbabwe show that more people got infected in the past weeks.
For instance, in the past four days, infection rates at Bondolfi Teachers’ College in Masvingo spiked to 94, a situation which has raised alarm over the onset of the third wave.
Last month, the country confirmed the presence of the deadly Indian variant, after it was detected in Kwekwe, which has heightened fears of its spread.
Health expert and Mpilo Central Hospital acting chief executive officer Solwayo Ngwenya told NewsDay that the country was already experiencing the third wave of COVID-19.
“A wave is not just seen by the peak, a wave starts from the bottom, and it’s like a mountain. The infection curve is moving upwards. So what we are seeing is building to the peak, where you see yourselves on the third wave,” he said.
“But the third wave is already here, and this is seen by the new infections being recorded everyday. As long as you are recording new infections, you are already into a wave. What is left now is building up to a crescendo at the top of the mountain, where you will see deaths and
“It’s a matter of when it’s going to hit the peak. My prediction, maybe a few weeks after schools close because there has been super spreading throughout the term especially at boarding schools. Children don’t seem to get sick from the virus and we have a lot of carriers of the virus out there, especially in boarding schools. So when schools close there will be a rapid increase of infections and possible deaths.”
The recent global dashboard statistics on the infection curve in Zimbabwe have revealed increased infections.
On May 26, the country recorded 113 new coronavirus infections, 35 on May 27, 64 on May 28, 15 on May 29 and 11 on May 30, which shows the country is having new infections daily.
Ngwenya said while the current shortage of COVID-19 vaccines the country was experiencing might be a worldwide problem as the demand for them was high, there was need to prevent more infections.
“There is an acute shortage of COVID-19 vaccines worldwide. It’s not only here, the demand for them is too high and rich countries have bought vaccines in advance, that’s why we are having these shortages. It’s difficult to buy vaccines now and get them on time,” he said.
Several vaccination centres in Harare and Bulawayo last week ran out of COVID-19 vaccines and were only serving those who needed the second dose.
Medical and Dental Private Practitioners of Zimbabwe Association president Johannes Marisa said: “South Africa has been hit by a third wave, which is a signal for us to be very cautious, careful and vigilant. We don’t want to be caught unawares like what happened in the second wave in December. The infection curve is on an upward trend. We have witnessed sporadic attacks like the Bondolfi College. We note that we have cluster transmissions.”
He said the shortage of COVID-19 jabs was because government ordered a limited quantity, without anticipating an increase in the number of people seeking to get vaccinated.
Community Working Group on Health executive director Itai Rusike said: “It looks like government underestimated the increased interest by the general public to embrace the national COVID-19 vaccination roll-out programme, with the increased uptake resulting in the current vaccine stock-outs.
“We require a people-centred systems approach that can deliver the vaccines efficiently to the vaccination centres and trace course completion of vaccine regiments so that we can avoid the current unfortunate situation whereby some areas are now running out of the vaccines threatening to erode the gains that had been achieved so far by the national vaccination programme.”
He said the third wave of the virus would likely hit the country hard.
But government yesterday dismissed reports that there was a shortage of vaccines in the country, saying the problem was created by the uneven distribution system which saw other vaccination centres experiencing stock-outs.
COVID-19 taskforce national co-ordinator Agnes Mahomva told NewsDay that the country had enough vaccines and people should not panic.
“What you are talking about are just social media issues. We don’t have a shortage of vaccines. What’s happening is that some centres experience stock-outs while others have huge stocks,” she said.
“So if you go to a centre and find there is a stock-out, that does not mean we have a shortage of vaccines. The Ministry of Health and Child Care is re-distributing the vaccines from centres which have stockpiles to those experiencing stock-outs.
“Let me also say that government has procured vaccines although I don’t have the quantities off hand, but we are going to receive them starting from tomorrow (today). So we have enough vaccines for the vaccination programme.”
Zimbabwe launched a countrywide inoculation exercise in February this year, targeting to achieve herd immunity which is about 60% of the population, but has so far inoculated 675 678 people.

It would be best not to let our guard down in relation to adherence to Covid regulations , following the announcement by sister nation's President Cyril Ramaphosa that the country will be returning to stricter lockdown measures due to the threat of a "third wave "of the virus .Experts have warned of this wave arriving from the Southern hemisphere hence the advise would be :
Mask up not only for yourself but for the nation at large
Make it a habit to mantain social distance
And educate the person close to you to do the same 😷🔥

Tip from UZ taskforce healthy department:
Few things are as good for you as regular physical activity. While it can be hard to find the time, it’s important to fit in at least 30 minutes of activity every day. More is even better, but any amount is better than none.
Choose activities you enjoy. Many things count as exercise, including walking, gardening and dancing.
Make exercise a habit by setting aside the same time for it each day. Try going to the gym at lunchtime or taking a walk regularly after dinner.
Stay motivated by exercising with someone.
Your health your responsibility
Stay safe and enjoy the rest of the day
*Boarders must stay at school during Easter, parents can’t visit, Mnangagwa decrees*
HARARE – Thousands of school children in boarding schools will be prevented from returning home for the Easter holidays, and relatives also cannot visit them as part of efforts to contain the spread of Covid-19, President Emmerson Mnangagwa announced on Tuesday.
Zimbabwe’s schools made a delayed and staggered re-opening on March 15 and March 22 after closing last December over virus concerns.
Teachers’ unions had proposed an opening after the holidays to allow learners to be with their families during the Easter holidays.
Bars and night clubs would remain closed, Mnangagwa decreed in a statement, while church gatherings and funerals must observe an upper limit of 50 people.
Zimbabweans are also “encouraged to defer unnecessary travel outside localities of residence,” Mnangagwa added.
The virus had killed at least 1,520 people from 36,839 infections on Monday, according to the ministry of health.
Just over 80,000 of Zimbabwe’s 15 million people had received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Mnangagwa said travellers arriving at ports of entry without Covid-19 test certificates issued within the previous 48 hours would be forced to quarantine for 10 days at designated hotels at own cost. Visitors with negative certificates must quarantine at their homes or hotels for 10 days before venturing out, he added.
Mnangagwa said Zimbabwe would open its vaccination programme to volunteering foreign tourists – but they would have to pay for the jab, without stating the cost.
Vaccination for volunteering Zimbabweans will be open during the Easter period, Mnangagwa said, after Zimbabwe on Tuesday received a further consignment of just over one million Sinovac vaccine doses from China, a day after India delivered 35,000 shots of its Covaxin vaccine.
The latest deliveries bring to about 1.5 million vaccine doses received to date.

We care for your Healthy ,so do the same for others as well
In a statement the President said during the Easter holidays, travellers coming into the country must undergo vslid Covid-19 PCR tests not more than 48 hours from the time of their departure for Zimbabwe.
He said travellers without the valid Covid-19 test results will be quarantined for 10 days at designated hotels at their own cost.
Learners who are in boarding schools will not be permitted to travel back home and the parents will not be allowed at the boarding schools.
Bars and night clubs will remain closed while all gatherings are limited to not more than 50 people.
The President also advised Zimbabweans to defer unnecessary travel.
Tourists who might want to be vaccinated while in the country will be expected to bear the costs for their vaccination in the country.
