Zimbabwe Returnees

Zimbabwe police said 99 returning Zimbabwean residents have escaped from quarantine centers throughout the country, as the country tries to contain COVID-19 cases, local media reported.

Spokesperson Paul Nyathi confirmed the incidents to the government-controlled Sunday Mail newspaper.

“I can confirm that 99 returnees have escaped from various quarantine centres across the country,” he said.

“However, some of them have been arrested. As police, we have stepped up our patrols to ensure that returnees do not escape. We are working with other stakeholders such as the Ministry of Health and Child Care to ensure compliance. We also urge returnees to comply with the quarantine regulations.”

Zimbabwe has received about 4,000 returnees in recent weeks, mainly from South Africa and Botswana.

Zimbabwe currently has reported 56 confirmed COVID-19 cases, including four deaths and 18 recoveries. Enditem
