The Zimbabwe Republic Police has warned members of the public against flouting newly announced measures to curb the spread of Covid-19.

President Mnangagwa this week adjusted the ongoing lockdown, with the curfew now running from 6pm to 6am.

Commerce was instructed to operate between 8 am and 3pm, while running at 40 percent capacity.
This has been necessitated by the recent spike in cases, which are attributed to complacency and the police said they will ensure that restrictions are adhered to.

In a statement, ZRP said;
“Police officers on patrol will check on compliance for security of all.
Inter-city travel has been banned except for the production and distribution of food and medicines.
Transporters who will be found contravening the Government’s intercity passenger traffic ban will have their staff arrested and the buses impounded. No mushikashika or pirate taxis will be tolerated. Any connivance by these illegal operators with members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police will be severely dealt with,” read the statement.

Zimbabwe is trying to ramp up vaccination to ensure that the intended herd immunity is achieved and the country can go back to normal again.
