VICE President Dr Constantino Chiwenga yesterday warned of the possibility of the country being hit by a second wave of Covid-19 saying ignorance, denial and wishful thinking could lead to more deaths.
America, Britain and other Western countries have started recording a second wave of Covid-19 at a time when the pandemic’s global death toll has surpassed 1,2 million, with 50 million people infected. Experts fear that second waves of the infection could be more devastating than the first.
Dr Chiwenga who is also the Minister of Health and Child Care expressed concern that many people are no longer adhering to prevention measures at a time when the world is staring at the threat of a second wave of Covid-19.
The Vice President was speaking in Bulawayo’s Makokoba suburb during the launch of a Covid-19 cycling campaign and health expo organised by Industry and Commerce Deputy Minister Raj Modi.
