Governance, Elections, Advocacy for Research services GEARS Initiative has appealed to government to close the country’s land boarders and place restrictions on Airplanes, to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus.

GEARS Initiative Executive Director MacDonald Chipenzi has wondered why government is taking a causal approach to the closure of the country’s boarders saying that all the Covid 19 cases recorded have been imported.

Mr. Chipenzi has told Christian voice news that the cost will be more if the virus spreads to uncontrollable levels compared to the closure of the country’s boarders for a stipulated time frame.

And Mr. Chipenzi has also appealed to government officials to restrict their international travels to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

He has also underscored the importance of Isolating government officials that have recently travelled to countries on high risk from Covid 19.
