Woman quarantined at Wilkins Hospital as Coronavirus fears hit hard


Woman quarantined at Wilkins Hospital as Coronavirus fears hit hard. The situation at the hospital is so critical that all other patients have been moved from the hospital to Beatrice Road Infectious Diseases Hospital (BRIDH) to pave way for the investigations. This is also a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus if it is indeed confirmed.

In a very alarming development, the Wilkins Infectious Diseases Hospital in Harare has quarantined a patient who is suspected to have the coronavirus. The patient who is under investigation is reported to have travelled from China.

The coronavirus scare has been confirmed by Harare City Health Director Dr Prosper Chonzi. Dr Chonzi said that Zimbabwe has had a Coronavirus ‘scare case’. However, Dr Chonzi reassured the nation that the medical personnel are taking the matter seriously and will be conducting a thorough investigation.

The director of Epidemiology and Disease Control at the Ministry of Health and Child Care, Dr Portia Manangazira also confirmed the development to ZTN News saying,

Yes, we have the case of a 27-year-old Zimbabwean who is being held at the Wilkins Hospital’s specialised unit in isolation. She was in Wuhan and passed through Guangzhou where she was certified to be Coronavirus negative and has a certificate to show for it.

When she arrived we were aware that she was coming because the Chinese authorities had alerted us and we took the precautionary steps of putting her in isolation. She is presently being monitored by a team of experts, including Chinese physicians. We will keep the nation updated.

Businessman and social media personality also committed on the matter saying that the hospital was under lockdown.
