Felix Zinhu who passed away
At least 29 Zimbabweans have died of coronavirus in the UK, according to the Zimbabwean Embassy in London.

The Embassy said in a statement it has no official figures but “has been able to gather information from the Diaspora community and religious leaders, cluster leaders, affected individuals and the media, on Zimbabweans who have passed on due to Covid-19”.

“To date, the Embassy has not received updated information from the host Government on the deaths of Zimbabweans due to Covid-19, understandably because the British government has explained that it is currently seized with implementing measures to contain the pandemic. They have promised to provide detailed information as soon as it is possible.”

With so many Zimbabweans in the nursing field in Britain, they are now particularly vulnerable. Some 60 000 Zimbabweans in England at risk of being infected.
