    Zimbabwe has eased its coronavirus lockdown and overnight curfew that were imposed in January.

    It is now allowing businesses to reopen after the rate of new infections slowed.

    Many businesses are now trying to recover, counting the cost after months of COVID-19 disruptions.

    But as winter approaches in the Southern Hemisphere, health officials are warning of a third wave if COVID-19 regulations are not followed.

    Business owners- on the brink of permanent closure – say they cannot afford another lockdown.
