Typhoid under control: Minister

Dr David Parirenyatwa interacts with patients at a typhoid screening centre in Mbare

Ministry of health has allayed fears on the typhoid scourge following reported cases in Harare, insisting that mechanisms have been put in place to curb the spreading of the disease.

In an interview yesterday after touring Matapi Clinic in Harare where 123 typhoid patients were screened, Minister of Health and Child Care Dr David Parirenyatwa said the typhoid outbreak that hit Mbare, Harare, in the last few days is now under control, but urged all residents to be vigilant as they remain under threat of contracting the water-borne disease.
