A woman allegedly suffering from Covid-19 related complications lost her life before health workers could attend to her. The incident has sent shock waves across social media as sad footage has emerged showing the moment mortuary workers clad in full PPE regalia to remove her from the scene.

A man recording the incident on camera can be heard bidding farewell to the woman who he identifies as her sister. From the number plated on the car, a Nissan Tiida, the incident happened at an unnamed hospital in Zimbabwe.

There was major outrage after the video was released with people calling for the government to step up its testing facilities as the situation escalates after confirmation of a second wave of the deadly virus.

In December 2020, a total of five people died while crossing the Beitbridge border post of another suspected Covid-19 illness.

The government also called for people to seek medical assistance as early as they feel them and not wait to get critical as it might be too late for medical assistance.
