South African authorities have said they will build a 40km fence along their country’s border with Zimbabwe to prevent illegal migrants from entering and spreading coronavirus.

The planned fence is to be erected on either side of the Beitbridge Land Port of Entry to “ensure that no undocumented or infected persons cross into the country”.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has already ordered 35 of 53 land entry points closed.

“This measure will … not be effective if the fences at the border are not secure, which in many places, they are not,” Patricia de Lille, the public works minister, said in a statement on Thursday.
