Zimbabwe to reopen airports as COVID-19 cases decline

Zimbabwe’s government has begun preparing for a gradual resumption of domestic flights, as daily COVID-19 cases have been on a decline over the past few weeks.

“The plan is to begin with the resumption of domestic flights and then move to international flights,” Information Minister, Monica Mutsvangwa announced at a post-cabinet media briefing on Tuesday.

“Government is finalizing on modalities for the reopening of airports to support the resumption of the tourism sector,” Mutsvangwa added.

Zimbabwe closed its borders and airports in late March following the outbreak of the pandemic in the country.

The government in June approved the resumption of the tourism sector, including boat operations.
