Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa says she was impressed by the developments at Robert Mugabe International Airport against the spread of the Covid -19.
There are three companies at the airport that are conducting Covid-19 tests on those who do not have valid Covid-19 negative certificates on arrival, with results taking at least two-and-a-half hours.
Speaking during the tour of the airport yesterday, Minister Mutsvangwa said it is now the government’s duty to assure travelers of the safety of traveling through the airport.
“It is our duty that we assure our travelers both domestic and international of the measures that have been taken here at the RGM International airport to make sure we contain the spread of this pandemic,” she said.
Minister Mutsvangwa urged members of the public to adhere to all measures put in place by the government to curb the spread of corona virus.
“This is a serious pandemic. We take it seriously as a country. A lot of measures have been put in place and we would like to continue making sure that our public adhere to these measures. ” She said.
Meanwhile, Minister Mutsvangwa showed her gratitude to the health companies placed at the airport who are now offering covid -19 testing in just two hours.
“The tour has given us confidence, as we speak to our public to assure them that your health is prioritized and the airport has put sufficient measures to contain the spread of this disease. Those who come without the Covid-19 free certificate have the opportunity to be tested right here at the airport and that process has been reduced to just two-and-a-half hours, some are saying two hours.”
Zimbabwean airports were allowed operation for domestic traveling from the the 1st of October.
