Is there a COVID-19 third wave in Zimbabwe?

This does not appear to be the case so far. The spike in cases is still isolated to certain schools and therefore cannot be characterised as a wave. The number of cases have remained low thus far and in most cases high numbers are due to clusters e.g. in certain boarding schools. The daily average is around 22 cases per day. Others however have pointed out that this is how the second wave started in Zimbabwe. The government was forced to introduce a hard lock-down in January to combat the second wave. The restrictions have now been eased and some fear that with people adopting lax attitudes a third wave is inevitable.
