Mnangagwa made the suggestions Friday morning during the Zanu PF Ordinary Session of the Politburo in Harare.
Zimbabwe Covid-19 confirmed cases are now at 926.
He said the new infections that have been recorded over the past week were alarming and government will be risking thousands of life, if they go unchecked.
“Although there is a visible spike in the number of positive cases, largely due to returnees, we shall continue to strengthen our preventive measures as well as our testing and contact tracing capacity,” Mnangagwa said.
“I urge the party (Zanu PF) to continue to be in the forefront of raising the awareness levels in our communities of the dangers of this pandemic. The recent rapid spike of infections requires that we make another review of the lockdown of the Covid19 lockdown measures” Mnangagwa added.
