Zimbabwe, one of the landlocked countries in Southern Africa, has received its first batch of Covid vaccines, President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said.
“The first batch of vaccines for Zimbabwe has been successfully delivered. We start vaccinating Zimbabweans this week!
“The faster our country is protected against this virus, the faster Zimbabwe’s economy can flourish,” Mnangagwa tweeted.
Four government ministers have so far died of coronavirus in Zimbabwe, prompting the country to further tighten lockdown measures.
According to media reports, several other cabinet ministers are fighting for their lives in a private hospital.
