RETURNEES SLEEPING ON THE FLOOR


Some 18 people quarantined in Beitbridge are sleeping on the floor. They returned from South Africa and are staying at Beitbridge Rainbow Hotel Isolation Centre in the border town.

The isolation centre has no tap water because Beitbridge generally has a serious water crisis. The borehole  has also broken down. The other teething problem is that there are no cooking utensils.

The isolation centre is a disused hotel with 140 rooms and two people are supposed to share a room. If the situation gets worse a conference centre at the hotel can be used to accommodate 100 more people.
