THIRTY-ONE more pupils have tested positive for COVID-19 at Chinhoyi High School.
Mashonaland West provincial medical director Gift Masoja yesterday confirmed that the number of learners that tested positive to the virus increased from 57 to 88 in the last three days.
Masoja said the number of positive cases was not for to schoolchildren only but could include staff.
He said the Health ministry would continue to test learners, but was equally worried about complacency of citizens in observing COVID-19 regulations.
“Let’s maintain social distancing, let’s sanitise and put on our masks because people have now relaxed. We are appealing to the business community to encourage their customers to put on masks” Masoja said.
He said the police should tighten the COVID-19 enforcement measures to curb the spread of the virus. ■
