To combat an increase in local transmission, the Zimbabwean government has imposed compulsory vaccinations for governmental servants and reduced the number of personnel reporting for job.
“All civil servants should be vaccinated,” Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa told reporters after a weekly cabinet meeting.
She also said only 25 percent of government workers were required to physically report for duty, according to tweets posted on her ministry’s account.
Courts will only open for urgent cases.
A day earlier a government circular directed all ministries to reduce the number of staff coming to work from “40 percent to 10 percent”. The limited staff numbers exclude health workers and designated critical services.
Over the last two months, the Delta version has witnessed a dramatic increase in Zimbabwe.

The first dose was given to slightly over 1.1 million of Zimbabwe’s 14.8 million population, and the second dose was given to just over 640,000.
