National Arts Council of Zimbabwe,
19 March 2020, Zimbabwe

The current Corona crisis is hitting hard all industries and the creative sector is no exception. In general, the arts sector will in the next few weeks and months face a tragedy of unprecedented level. The government of Zimbabwe on Tuesday declared COVID-19 a state of National Disaster and the President announced a raft of measures crafted as part of the response mechanism for the country. We applaud the measures taken by the government as the nation’s health and well-being comes first.
