Zimbabwe has recorded a significant decrease in COVID-19 deaths during this winter season compared to last year. 

This development comes after the government put measures in place to curb the spread of the deadly pandemic.

Zimbabwe procured more than 20 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines to attain herd immunity and was also one of the first African countries to reach the targeted 10 per cent goal set by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

According to statistics from the Ministry of Health and Child Care, from May 1 to August 21, 123 deaths have been recorded countrywide.

A total of 2,845, COVID-19 deaths were recorded in the same period last year during the height of the Delta variant, which killed more people compared to Beta and Omicron.
