MASVINGO – As Zanu PF continues with its huge meetings and rallies in violation of the lockdown, Masvingo’s sole Covid19 isolation Centre in Rujeko is almost full with eight of the 10 beds occupied.
Sources said that the center is now overwhelmed with inadequate oxygen stocks. Masvingo recorded its latest Covid19 death on Friday.
Masvingo recorded 65 new Covid-19 cases yesterday and it now has 338 active cases, one of the highest by any province in the country. Zanu PF had a big meeting in Chiredzi a few weeks ago and another in Masvingo at the weekend.
Provincial Covid19 spokesperson Rodgers Irimayi confirmed the number of patients at Rujeko Clinic and the latest figures for the province.
“There are eight people admitted at Rujeko Isolation Centre with Covid19 and a death was recorded at the centre on Friday,” said Irimayi.
Well places sources told The Mirror that most of the inmates work in the CBD with a manager of a top wholesaler and three of his subordinates admitted at the centre.
“The centre is overwhelmed and it does not have oxygen tanks. Nurses at the centre are struggling to help the patients because of this situation,” said the source.
