Harare/Xinhua/UNI:  Zimbabwe's COVID-19 cases have risen to 46 after two confirmed cases were reported in Harare on Sunday.

One is a male resident of Harare who returned from Britain and the other is a cross-border truck driver who initially tested positive in Zambia and again tested positive on re-testing in Harare, the Ministry of Health and Child Care said in an update on Monday.

Zambian media reported on Friday that six Zimbabwean cross-border truck drivers tested positive for COVID-19 after crossing through the Chirundu border post into Zambia.

The number of people who have recovered in Zimbabwe is now 18 while deaths remain at four.
