Health experts are
concerned that most sick people are now opting to stay at home due to lack of
funds for treatment and the economic and political climate in the country.
Secretary of Health, Dr Henry Madzorere of the MDC formation led by Morgan Tsvangirai, tells studio 7 for Zimbabwe reporter Carole Gombakomba that the ongoing strike by junior doctors and nurses at state hospitals, has worsened the situation and that there could be far too many unnenecessary deaths due to the declining health care system.
Itai Rusike, executive director of the Community Working Group also tells studio 7 that the burden has now been left to community health care workers and relatives who are now struggling to take care of the sick in their homes.
