The nurse from Cowdray Park suburb was yesterday sent home to self-isolate while three others were admitted to hospital.

Health workers at the public institution are being tested to determine if any of them had been in close contact with the infected nurse.

During yesterday’s post-Cabinet briefing, Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa announced that Covid-19 cases had reached 132 countrywide with Bulawayo recording three more cases.

It was not immediately clear if the four Mpilo cases are part of the three which were announced yesterday.
