Parirenyatwa hospital has suspended hospital visits for the time being in a bid to minimise the spread of Covid-19.
In a statement yesterday, the hospital said the temporary ban is because there were Covid -19 infections within the hospital.
“Please be advised that we have suspended all the visiting times due to the surge in the number of Covid-19 local infections and increase in reported cases within our institution.” They said.
The Ministry of Health and Child Care by yesterday recorded 95 new Covid -19 cases and Zimbabwe now has 304 deaths.
The hospital said the temporary ban of visitors is to protect everyone from contacting the corona virus.
“This measure has been necessitated by the need to protect in-patients, staff members and visitors.” The hospital said.
Zimbabwe recorded 73 new cases between Tuesday and yesterday, all from local sources, with nine reported deaths, all in Harare.
