JOHANNESBURG - Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa has extended the country's lockdown by two weeks.
But mining companies will be allowed to get back to work.
Twenty-five cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in Zimbabwe, and three deaths.
Health experts expect the figures to rise once authorities step up testing.
The lockdown has left many in Zimbabwe without an income and food, at a time when the country is grappling with its worst economic crisis in a decade.
