GWERU District Covid 19 taskforce has dismissed as a hoax reports doing rounds on social media platforms that there was a Covid 19 outbreak at Nashville High School.
This was after all the 192 boarders at the school tested negative after rapid tests were conducted at a nearby clinic this morning.
Gweru District Development Coordinator, Mr Joram Chimedza who is also the District Covid 19 Taskforce chairperson said they responded to social media reports and conducted tests on all the pupils and teachers.
“We reacted to reports of an audio and pictures that went viral circulating on social media platforms last night and did the tests today. Not even a single pupil or teacher tested positive, the situation is normal at the school and we appeal to members of the media to stop peddling falsehoods,” he said.
Mr Chimedza said the Midlands Provincial Affairs Minister Senator Larry Mavima will soon issue a statement on the issue.
