Zimbabwe has confirmed its first case of the coronavirus as the pandemic reaches a health system that has nearly collapsed amid an economic crisis.

The southern African nation’s health minister said the infected man lives in Victoria Falls, one of the most visited tourist destinations in Africa.

“This is the first case of COVID-19 in Zimbabwe. The patient is a 38-year-old Caucasian man … who had travelled to Manchester in the UK on the 7th of March and returned to his home in Victoria Falls on the 15th of March via South Africa,” Health Minister Obadiah Moyo said on state television ZTV.
