Zimbabwe’s churches and other places of worship will now be limited to 100 people, the information minister said, as coronavirus lockdown rules are further eased. Information minister Monica Mutsvangwa said the cabinet revised upwards the gatherings for Churches from 50 to 100 taking into cognizance that Zimbabwe is largely a religious nation.

“Cabinet, nonetheless, appeals to Churches to ensure that congregants continue to observe Covid-19 containment measures by enforcing the compulsory and proper wearing of masks, practicing social distancing and washing of hands,” she said. The southern African nation’s churches were reopened in June this year but maintained the number of congregants at just 50 worshippers.

At the time, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said the church was essential in the fight against the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic hence the decision to reopen.

Zimbabwe has so far recorded 7,711 confirmed cases of Covid-19, 5,979 recoveries and 226 deaths.
