GUTU – A teacher at Dewure High School in Gutu has tested positive to Covid-19, The Mirror has been told.
Samuel Mahwehwe, the school head confirmed the story but referred all questions to the District Schools Inspector who said he was afraid to be misquoted and asked The Mirror to talk to the Provincial Education Director before hanging his phone.
Dewure is one of the three largest boarding schools in Gutu District.
Efforts to get a comment from the PED, Zedius Chitiga were fruitless. The case comes as there is a strong upswing in Covid-19 cases in schools throughout the country.
Yesterday an A Level student at Christian College in Mucheke in Masvingo sat for exams without being tested for Covid-19 barely 24 hours after an uncle he stayed with in Rujeko died of the disease.
