Hand shaking at funerals in Zimbabwe is now strongly discouraged.
The reason is that people fear the spread of cholera and typhoid.
Health and Child Care Minister Dr David Parirenyatwa said a National Response Team had put temporary holding camps in strategic areas‚ particularly on Zimbabwe’s borders with Zambia‚ where 3‚000 cases and more than 70 deaths have been reported.
“People must avoid shaking hands at funerals. If you have to do it‚ please use a fist or elbow‚” he added.
