On March 18, the government of Zimbabwe declared the Covid-19 coronavirus a national crisis and canceled or postponed all sporting events and Independence Day in the African nation. However, schools and entertainment venues remained open.

More than a week later, on March 27, the country stepped up its measures and announced a complete nationwide lockdown in an attempt to prevent the coronavirus from further spreading.

All shops have to close down, except for grocery stores. Public transport will be banned for the following three weeks as part of the lockdown. So far, five cases of the coronavirus have been reported in the African country.
