Zimbabwe Doctors for Human Rights (ZDHR) have advised the government not to open land borders with South Africa when it surveys the current lockdown.
The finish of the all-inclusive lockdown harmonizes with South Africa's goal to open its lines on February 15.

"Zimbabwe had done genuinely well in controlling COVID-19 as proven by the decrease in new cases and furthermore a declining death rate. We encourage the specialists to be in favor of alert all things considered until we accomplish most extreme control of the pandemic," he added.
Home issues serve Kazembe said a choice to open the nation's ports of section would be made after interviews with the public COVID-19 team. Right now just air terminals are open for regular citizen travel.
Then, as a component of measures to diminish the spread of the infection, the Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum conveyed a request to President Emmerson Mnangagwa to consider official acquittals as an instrument to decongest penitentiaries.
"The danger of COVID-19 spreading in our stuffed detainment facilities is excessively high. Allowing of an official exculpation is the correct intention for ensure the weak detainees," the association said.
It said at Mutimurefu Prison in Masvingo 110 out of 150 detainees tried in January were COVID-19 positive. Thusly, if that somehow happened to be used as an example for the entire jail framework with 22 000 prisoners, over the 17 000 limit, it could spell destruction.
