MASVINGO – A suspected Covid19 body belonging to Laiza Magwenzi who died at Farm 10 Mushagashe under Chief Zimuto went uncollected 18 hours after death, reliable sources told The Mirror.
Sources said Magwenzi died at around 6pm Wednesday but her body was only collected on Thursday at around 13:45pm by Nyaradzo Funeral Services.
Efforts to get a comment from Masvingo Covid19 Provincial Taskforce spokesperson Rodgers Irimayi were futile.
The deceased neighbour who spoke to The Mirror said people were afraid to touch Magwenzi’s body because they suspected that she died from Covid since she complained of a headache.
The deceased’s husband Bestar Magwenzi said her wife’s blood pressure was high when she visited the doctor in Masvingo for check-up previous week.
However, she complained of headache for a short space of time before she collapsed and instantly dies on their yard.
