Harare to test 100 000 people in coming weeks

In an effort to reverse current upward trend of Covid-19 transmissions, the country will next week embark on massive community testing targeting to reach at least 100 000 people in the coming few weeks.

The idea, according to officials is to identify, trace and isolate all suspected cases.

In an interview yesterday, Harare City Council director for health services, Dr Prosper Chonzi said under the arrangement, Harare targets to run about 30 000 tests.

He said preparations for the exercise, which will take place at every community clinic administered by the local authority were at an advanced stage.
