COVID-19 has caused phenomenal disruption across the word, and Zimbabwe has not been spared. However the impact of COVID-19 can be mitigated by coordinated efforts of both state and non-state actors. ZESN seeks to support these efforts by engaging in sustained efforts to raise awareness of the stipulated health guidelines which, if observed stringently, will help flatten the curve. ZESN shares reports from its Long Term Observers (LTOs) so as to inform policy makers and interventions of actors mentioned above.
Besides commenting on the extent to which duty bearers are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic the report also comments on how the rights holders are likewise observing the health regulations stipulated by the Ministry of Health and Child Care, which are in keeping with those established by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to flatten the curve.
This report summarises the findings of ZESN Long Term Observers from Zimbabwe’s 210 constituencies during the period 2 – 8 August 2020.
