The Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe has told members to boycott the marking of exams to protect themselves from Covid-19.

"Use your brains rather than your stomach. Life is far more important than 30 pieces of silver. Zimsec does not care for any markers who test positive"

There are reports that reports that more than 250 school heads and teachers had tested positive of Covid-19.

An undisclosed number of educators around the country have succumbed to the deadly virus although authorities have not collated and released statistics of teachers that have died so far.

PTUZ secretary-general Raymond Majongwe said there were reports that some school heads and teachers were not disclosing their Covid-19 statuses, which exposed fellow workers and students to the virus.
