HON. JOSHUA SACCO: Thank you Mr Speaker Sir. Firstly, I would like to applaud the Hon. Vice President and Minister of Health for the timely intervention for bringing in the vaccines to Zimbabwe. #WhereAreOurVaccinesZW
HON. SACCO: My question is around use of alternative treatments for COVID-19. There is talk about the use of ivermectin drug which I know has been authorised for investigations to be done around the use of ivermectin for treatment as well as prophylaxis. #WhereAreOurVaccinesZW
HON. SACCO: Could the Hon. Vice President comment on ivermectin. Can it be used as a drug for human beings and how effective is it? Thank you. #WhereAreOurVaccinesZW #OpenCovidContracts

@BitiTendai : I want to thank the esteemed Vice President and Minister of Health and Child Care. I have got four questions for the esteemed Minister. #WhereAreOurVaccinesZW #OpenCovidContracts @ZIMCODD1
@BitiTendai : Hon. Minister Sir, why are you pursuing head count instead of a target of just immunising every Zimbabwean? Head counting did not work in the United Kingdom and other countries. #WhereAreOurVaccinesZW #OpenCovidContracts @kubatana @ZimRightsLIVE @CitManifesto
@BitiTendai : So, why is your strategy on head-count instead of just immunising everyone because everyone can fall sick and die? We have lost so many people. My suggestion is that you must go for a target of immunising every Zimbabwean. #WhereAreOurVaccinesZW #OpenCovidContracts

HON. MISIHAIRABWI: Thank you very much Mr Speaker Sir. I am sure you will allow me to thank the Minister for the presentation. #WhereAreOurVaccinesZW #OpenCovidContracts @ZIMCODD1 @ZimRightsLIVE @kubatana @CitManifesto
HON. MISIHARABWI: My first question to the Minister and Vice President is to do with the figures that you have given us in terms of the targets, particularly for the first phase. #WhereAreOurVaccinesZW #OpenCovidContracts
HON. MISIHAIRABWI: If you are looking at your frontline workers, you are only looking at workers not necessarily their partners. When we look at partners those figures substantially change. May you explain how it is feasible to just do one person & not necessarily their partner?
