There was uproar at Sakunda run Rock Foundation Medical Centre after five people tested covid-19 positive linked to a Warren Park hairdresser who worked at Westagate salon who has since died.
The deceased Paida who worked at Curl Up and Dry hair salon is feared to have infected several others besides the 5 admitted at Rock Foundation.
In a chat obtained by Harare Live, the woman stayed in 135 Warren Park D and people have expressed concern urging others to be careful as reality of the virus sinks in.
