CHIREDZI - The Minister of Health and Child Care Dr David Parirenyatwa flew to Malipati in the remote part of Chiredzi on Saturday following a serious outbreak of malaria in Masvingo that has seen 33 deaths since January 6, this year.
The outbreak has been attributed to heavy rains that have increased breeding places for mosquitoes.
One clinic in Malipati has reported 196 treated patients while only two clinics in the Chiredzi District recorded zero patients.
Malipati is inaccessible by road following Cyclone Dione induced floods that ravaged the country in the last three weeks.
Masvingo Provincial Medical Director Amadeous Shamhu confirmed the outbreak and said the province witnessed 33 recorded deaths due to malaria and Chiredzi District has the highest number of reported cases. He said that Parirenyatwa visited the district on Saturday to assess the situation and he brought with him drugs to the inaccessible areas.
He advised people to get medication the moment they see symptoms associated with malaria.
 "We have a malaria outbreak and Chiredzi is the worst affected district. Some 33 deaths have been recorded in Masvingo from January 6, 2017 to date. Thirteen people died in Chiredzi alone and these are recorded cases. There maybe some that went unreported," said news
