Covid-19 Claims Five Villagers Who Had Attended A Funeral Service

In a space of a week, five villagers from Lower Gweru under Chief Sogwala died from Covid-19 after attending a funeral service of a relative who had succumbed to the virus.

According to the local leadership, several other villagers, most of them relatives who were at the burial ceremony last week, contracted the virus, The Herald reports.

The local village head Siziwe Siyaphi who confirmed the five deaths said the afflicted Ngwenya family had a deceased relative whose body came from South Africa in a coffin sealed with plastic after he died from Covid-19

“Instead of burying their loved one in line with Covid-19 control regulations, they opened the wrapped coffin and conducted body viewing,” said the village head.

Many people in the village are now said to have been infected by the virus.

Chief Sogwala lamented the level of complacency in the area and called on his subjects to adhere Covid-19 regulations.

Chief Sogwala said the local leadership should do more to concientise villagers about the pandemic.

 

Government regulations stipulate that only 30 people are allowed to attend funeral gatherings under strict Covid-19 health protocols, while body viewing is banned.
