Following the 23 March 2020 announcement the Zimbabwe Government declared a 21 day lockdown in response to the Covid-19 Pandemic commencing on 30 March 2020. As a result of this the finalisation process was not completed in March, but finalisation remains expected to complete shortly.

Further announcements will be made as the situation develops.
