In a statement, the health ministry said any result from an unauthorised laboratory shall be regarded as fake/illegal and shall be dealt with in line with the provisions of the Health Professions Act Chapter (27.19) part xviii section 99 subsection 1 and 2.

“It has come to the attention of the Ministry Of Health and Child Care that there are Laboratories carrying out SARS-CoV-2 testing without the prior requirement of assessment and certification.
“The Ministry of Health and Child Care wishes to advise the public that only Laboratories that have been assessed and certified by the Ministry of Health and Child Care in collaboration with the Medical Laboratory and Clinical Scientists Council of Zimbabwe and the World Health Organization are the only laboratories approved to carry out SARS-CoV-2 testing and publish results. Any Laboratory that wishes to carry out SARS-CoV-2 should apply to the Medical Laboratory and Clinical Scientist Council of Zimbabwe.”
