‘Here, we cannot practice what is preached’: experiences of COVID-19 in Zimbabwe

‘Here, we cannot practice what is preached’: experiences of COVID-19 in Zimbabwe London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) “Since the lockdown in Zimbabwe was mandated beginning on March 30th, I take my daily walks to get out of the confines of my house. As the weeks progress, these walks have become…busier. Cars everywhere, people everywhere. My local potato and tomato vendors started reappearing at street corners, attempting to sell their produce. At one point I asked one of the vendors if the lockdown had ended, and I had somehow missed that announcement. No, the lockdown hadn't ended but the need to feed their families and earn some income had intensified. As one vendor gently mentioned ‘kusiri kufa ndekupi’ which loosely translates to ‘we are all going to die anyways’." – Constancia Mavodza." (Photo: UN Women/flickr, CC BY-NC-ND 2.0)
