PARIRENYATWA Group of Hospitals has suspended all hospital visits with effect from today (December 9) as COVID-19 positive cases continue to soar.

This notice is going to be implemented with effect from 9 December 2020 and may be revoked anytime depending on the circumstances on the ground,” reads a statement issued by the group of hospitals.
