Why are we abusing sick Zimbabweans?

Once again another friend, relative, colleague and country men and women are passing on not because they cannot be treated, NO, but the cost of our health service has sky-rocketed way beyond the reach of  most Zimbabweans.

For one to be admitted he/she needs to have his/her COVID-19 results which cost a USD$60, then one has to pay USD$500 for consultation and USD$1500 to be admitted. Surely this is a death sentence for an ordinary Zimbabwean.

There is no better time for our government to save its citizens than now, Our Vice President and the Minister of Health Sir, your leadership is now required to immediately demand the reduction in cost of our health services, in fact to make it free for COVID-19 patients who are in serious condition.

Cde Minister we are all going to perish, Tichapera/Sizaphela and your leading hand is now required.
