A hundred pupils at a secondary school in northwestern Zimbabwe have tested positive for Covid-19, the public authority said Tuesday, raising feelings of trepidation of another rush of the respiratory contamination.
“An aggregate of 100 understudies have tried positive for Covid-19 at… John Tallach boarding optional school in Matabeleland North,” government representative Nick Mangwana said on Twitter.
He didn’t determine when the tests were directed yet said the school, which has in excess of 600 understudies, “has since been closed, with nobody permitted in or out.”
Zimbabwe has so far recorded 8,897 instances of Covid, including 257 passings, far less than in neighboring South Africa, which has scored up in excess of 750,000 cases with 20,314 fatalities.
Shut in March under measures to restrict the spread of the infection, Zimbabwean schools have been progressively re-opening since September after new cases started to decay.
