The Minister of Information, Publicity, and Broadcasting Services, Monica Mutsvangwa says in the face of the threat of a Third Wave, Cabinet has deferred consideration of the opening of bars and nightclubs until further notice.

Speaking during a post cabinet briefing, Mutsvangwa also pointed that Covid-19 vaccination of residents of border towns has been prioritised and is well on course.

She said citizens can also receive their second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine anywhere in the country without prejudice.
