In a rather shocking development a hospital in Zimbabwe will be charging Covid-19 patients upto $5000 .

In a memorandum published by private hospital Mater Dei Hospital it states that it will be charging US$60 for casualties a general ward will cost US$3000 yet ICU hospitalization will cost US$5000.
