ZIMBABWE’S Covid-19 cases have risen to 25 with the latest case being attributed to Manicaland.

Case 25 is a Mutare resident who left the eastern border city four months ago and is currently in isolation in Harare having arrived in the country mid-last week.

Acting Manicaland provincial medical director Dr Munyaradzi Mukuzunga said the reported Covid-19 case was a positive result from tests done on April 16 2020.

The disease has now affected half of the country’s 10 provinces with Masvingo, Midlands, Mashonaland Central, Mashonaland West and Matebeleland South still to record any cases.

There has been three deaths and two recoveries from the disease which has now afflicted over 2.2 million people and killed over 150 000.

The first case was recorded in Matebeleland North almost a month ago before more cases were recorded in Harare, Mashonaland East and Bulawayo.

Bulawayo currently has 10 cases, the most of any province, including the youngest – a four-year-old. Harare has nine, Mashonaland East four and Matebeleland North one.
