Coronavirus: Zimbabwe lockdown hampered by food shortages

Zimbabwe has one of the lowest reported cases of coronavirus, but there are questions about whether this figure is an accurate reflection of presence of the virus.

This week marks the third and possibly final week of a lockdown to contain the spread of the virus, one that the government has already partially lifted.

The BBCs Shingai Nyoka brings this story of how Zimbabweans are coping against the ongoing threat of Covid-19.
