As of 3 September, 6,678 COVID-19 cases and 206 deaths were conﬁrmed, with 85 per cent in the five provinces of Harare, Bulawayo, Matabeleland South, Midlands and Manicaland.
From 1 April to 31 August, 17,732 Zimbabwean migrants returned from neighbouring countries, with over 989 returnees still being quarantined.
Access to essential health services has decreased due to insufficient health workers, health workers in isolation/quarantine, insufficient PPE, and user fees in health facilities.
With swarms and hoppers moving into Manicaland Province, locust damage to crops are expected to compound food insecurity in communities already affected by drought and COVID-19.
