Four days after the US embassy in Tanzania reports that many hospitals are overwhelmed with coronavirus cases, President Magufuli announced that Covid-19 infections are declining sharply in the country.
Speaking to a church congregation his hometown Chato, President Magufuli said revealed that Dar es Salaam’s Hospital has 12 cases of coronavirus, an indication that there are minimal infections of the novel virus.
“God has answered our prayers,” President Magufuli told the applauding congregants.
Shockingly, the Head of State revealed that one of his sons had contracted coronavirus, but is now well after taking a concoction of lemon and ginger.
He urged Tanzanians who would contract the virus to uses the unscientific remedy that his son used.
Magufuli told the congregants that he would reopen higher learning institutions and the tourism sector if the country continued to experience minimal coronavirus infections.
Magufuli, furthermore, said that incoming tourists would not be placed under quarantine-only a temperature test was necessary to tour the country.
“The way I see this trend if the week beginning from tomorrow continues like this. I plan to open places of higher education so that our students can continue with their studies,” he said.
Magufuli vowed not to place his country in a lockdown despite the possibility of new coronavirus infections. He said such a move would cripple the Tanzanian economy.
