Zimbabwe began its 21-day lockdown on Monday, with citizens in most parts of the country complying.

ZTN journalists in major cities Harare, Bulawayo, Mutare and Gweru; and rural areas report that essential services and grocery shops are operational while the rest of the citizenry is home.

Police are on the streets, dissuading loitering and encouraging Coronavirus prevention.

The lockdown aims to arrest the spread of Coronavirus, which has killed 34 617 people globally.

Zimbabwe has recorded seven cases, including one death.

The virus’ spread has declined in other countries on lockdown.

For instance, Italy, though still with the highest number of deaths, has seen the rate of new cases fall after two weeks of quarantine.

Experts have also detected “early signs” that the spread in Britain has been curtailed by lockdown.
