Family of 4 tests positive to Covid-19 in Masvingo


MASVINGO – Covid-19 must be lurking in the dark in Masvingo after a family of four including two school-going children from Rujeko Suburb tested positive to Covid-19 yesterday.

The four who cannot be named are a man, his wife and two minor children and they are now in isolation at home. The positive tests have been recorded just as the full opening of schools is taking place on Monday.

Masvingo Covid-19 Provincial Taskforce spokesperson Rodgers Irimayi confirmed the story in an interview with The Mirror.

The Mirror could not immediately establish the school attended by the children. Irimayi said health officials are tracing contacts.

“We are still analyzing the situation and all contacts are being traced. The family is in self-isolation at home. We are yet to determine whether it is a local transmission or not,” said Irimayi.
