COVID-19 positive cases jumped from below 120 daily cases in the last few weeks to 300 cases yesterday which is this month’s all-time high. This was revealed by the Ministry Of Health which stated that cases 13 cases were returnees but the rest were local cases.
Said the Ministry in the update:
300 new cases and 1 death reported in the last 24 hours. 287 are local cases and 13 are returnees, 4 from South Africa and 9 from Botswana.
The update also noted that the single death reported in 24 hours was from Midlands. The country has so far recorded over 13 600 cases and the recent upsurge in cases has prompted the government to postpone school opening until further notice.
Meanwhile, a COVID-19 vaccine developed by Oxford University was approved in the UK which makes it the 3rd vaccine the world has seen since the onset of the pandemic in China last year.
