"This evening, Friday, March 20, 2020, the National Reference Laboratory at Sally Mugabe Central Hospital confirmed that a suspected case of COVID-19 has tested positive,” Moyo said in a televised address. "This is the first COVID-19 in Zimbabwe,"
Zimbabwe, earlier this week, said a British tourist who visited Victoria Falls but tested positive for the virus known as COVID-19 upon return to the U.K.
As part of measures against the virus, Zimbabwe closed schools, banned public gatherings and imposed travel restrictions. ■
