Zimbabwe has witnessed a gradual decline in COVID-19 cases and deaths since the beginning of the year, resulting in the government relaxing most COVID-19 preventive measures.

Daily cases declined by 46 percent over the past week, while no deaths were recorded over the past two days, Mutsvangwa said.

  No, WHO’s director general did not say he wasn’t vaccinated during an interview The World Health Organization (WHO) has encouraged people across the world to get the COVID-19 vaccine since it first became available to the public. As of Aug. 2, 2022, a total of 12,308,330,588 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered worldwide. But, people on social media are questioning whether WHO’s Director General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, M.D., has received the vaccine after a video clip appears to show him admitting he hasn’t been vaccinated. The video claims to show Ghebreyesus sitting down for an interview, during which he says he wasn’t vaccinated because he was “protesting” until poorer regions across the world gained access to the vaccine.

Mutsvangwa said the ministry of health and child care has started an intensive vaccination program against the disease.
