By PATIENCE MAKUKUTU
THE acting town clerk for Chitungwiza Dr Tonderai Kasu is appealing for support from the corporate
world and donors towards the construction of Covid-19 isolation centres.
Kasu said council had plans to construct and fully equip a functional 45-bed isolation facility that will
include five beds for the intensive care unit (lCU).
"The unit L Seke South community hall is in close proximity to Seke South clinic which is spacious.
“We will be renovating the Seke South community hall for it to cater for overflow of patients that
will be affected by corona virus."
He added that when the renovations are complete the facility will have a capacity to house more
than 100 beds for coronavirus patients.
"I have written to the Honourable Minister of Health and Child Care Obadiah Moyo informing him
about our plans with respect to renovations and constructions of these sites.
“We are requesting for assistance from the ministry in form of material and financial resources to
achieve the intended plans," he said.
According to Kasu, a team from the World Health Organisation has also toured all the sites and has
given technical advice.
