President Emmerson Mnangagwa has urged Zimbabweans to stop attending private parties and gatherings.

The President said in the "next hours, days and even months" there will be surging Covid-19 infections and deaths, urging the nation to unite in its fight against the virulent pandemic.

Mngangagwa said this in a televised address after the death of multiple serving and former government officials from Covid-19.

Mnangagwa said the situation is very worrisome and threatens to become dire. However, he said there is hope as shown by the Covid-19 recovery rate. He thanks frontline health staff and says the lockdown could be tightened.

He added Zimbabwe will receive a vaccine 'quite soon' frontline workers to be inoculated first.

Mnangagwa exhorted Zimbabweans to unite in fighting the Covid-19 crisis. He said Zimbabwe has conquered bigger problems before.

"We're united in grief...there are no spectators, no adjudicators, no holier than thou, no superman or superwoman... we're all affected."
