Shurugwi Maternity closes as nurses test Covid-19 positive


Shurugwi – White Maternity Home in Shurugwi urban was closed two weeks ago after reports that some nurses at the health centre tested positive to Covid-19.

This has left expecting mothers in a difficult situation as they now have to travel 35km to Gweru or Zvamabande Hospital thereby pushing up costs in these hyperinflation times.

Shurugwi District Medical Officer Dr Chandiwana Nyachowa refused to comment on the matter.

A source within the Covid-19 district taskforce told The Mirror that the home had been closed for fumigation and will reopen soon.

“It is true that the maternity home is closed but we understand that it will reopen after fumigation,” said the source.
