Zimbabwe: land borders open to vaccinated people

Authorities in Zimbabwe have announced the reopening of the country’s borders to people who have fully been vaccinated against covid-19 or tested negative for coronavirus.

The reopening follows a drop in the southern African nation’s daily infection rates.

Only lorries and trucks carrying essential cargo into the landlocked country – and returning citizens – have been permitted in by road over the last two years, the BBC reports.

Zimbabwe closed its border crossings in March 2020. They were briefly reopened in December for non-essential travel that year, but that led to a surge in cases.
