Some cases can’t isolate home: Govt
By TARIRO MASUNDA
GOVERNMENT has said that while the WHO guidelines recommend the self-solation of asymptomatic positive cases, there are some cases that are unable to self-isolate in their homes.
The minister of Information Monica Mutsvangwa yesterday said such cases were being housed at isolation centres intended for those who require treatment.
The country has witnessed a surge in positive cases, especially among returnees.
Mutsvangwa said as of yesterday there were 1 770 returnees in quarantine facilities across the country, with the highest number of returnees being housed in Harare.
“It has also been noted that there are some cases that have the capacity to self-isolate but are not adhering to self-isolation protocols and are putting communities at risk.
“We have recommended that all positive cases at private and public quarantine facilities be moved to specific isolation centres in order to prevent the further spread of Covid-19.”
