There has been a recent spike in Coronavirus cases and deaths in Zimbabwe recently. Sadly the government is yet to introduce extensive testing with most testing still very much centralised around major towns and cities only. It’s not also very clear what one needs to do in order to get tested at government hospitals with nurses and doctors on strike. In response to this we have here compiled a list of centres where you can get tested and the relevant costs.
