Stringent Covid-19 regulations – including testing, symptom screenings, and curfews – is being blamed for a traffic jam stretching for about 10 to 15 kilometres on both sides of the Beitbridge border post between Zimbabwe and South Africa. Business Insider reports that although the Beitbridge border is regarded as a 24-hour post, curfews in both Zimbabwe and South Africa have stopped operations between 22:00 and 04:00, with only freight-carrying vehicles allowed through during those hours, and while the situation on the South African side of the border has been noted with serious concern as a potential super-spreader event, Covid-19 risks in the small Zimbabwean town of Beitbridge have been described as a “humanitarian crisis”.
