The Mutare Government Complex has been closed for disinfection of the premises after several employees tested positive to Covid-19.

The complex houses several Government departments, with hundreds of workers stationed there.
Manicaland Provincial Covid-19 taskforce chairperson Dr Ellen Gwaradzimba confirmed the development.

She said those that had tested positive were from the first batch of results that had come back and they are still waiting for more results.

She however said she could not divulge the number of those who had tested positive as the Ministry of Health and Child Care will do so in the national report.

“We received positive results for some of our employees and this is from the first batch of results that came back.
“All offices at the Government Complex have been disinfected, save for three whose keys are not readily available.
“The other samples are still being run while samples for the rest of the workers were collected today,” she said.

Manicaland has so far recorded 167 positive cases and six deaths, thereby making it the province with the third highest number of deaths in the country.
The development at Government Complex comes as some local companies have also been closing their doors for disinfection.

Last week, Mega Market reported that some of its employees had tested positive to the disease. Disinfection of the premises was carried out by the Mutare City Health department.
Their offices will remain closed until tomorrow.

Dr Gwaradzimba said the Mutare District Taskforce had  advised that the Mega Market situation was now under control and that the company could reopen its doors on Monday
