Chivi residents and vendors in the growth point now fear for an impending covid 19 lockdown amid a rise in covid 19 infections at Masvingo Teachers College which is now at 157 according to Masvingo covid 19 taskforce spokesperson Rodgers Irimayi, Hevoi FM news can report.
Most residents who are vendors in the growth point say if the lockdown is implemented as a restrictive measure to curb
the spread, it will affect dearly their source of livelihood.
“We survive on hand to mouth daily as most Chivi residents, we are very much concerned about an upsurge of covid 19 cases again especially at Masvingo Teachers college. If bad luck is to go by I foresee a looming lockdown,” said one Chivi resident.
Another resident and vendor at Chivi flea market Kennedy Sheunesu told Hevoi FM news that this covid 19 issue has become thorn in the flesh as it has continued to make people suffer.
“This covid 19 issue has become a thorn in the flesh because we are just coming from other serious lockdowns which had almost crippled us in our business. It makes us languish in poverty because we will no longer be working while we are locked down in our homes,” lamented Sheunesu.
Recently, in South Africa and Botswana which borders with Zimbabwe a new variant Omicron B.1.1.529 was detected and health experts are warning members of the public that complacency and disregard for COVID 19 protocols might get people contracting the virus..
