Tanzania’s President John Pombe Magufuli has declared that his country is free from COVID-19 pandemic. “The corona disease has been eliminated thanks to God,” Mr Magufuli told worshippers in a church in the capital, Dodoma.
“I want to thank Tanzanians of all faiths. We have been praying and fasting for God to save us from the pandemic that has afflicted our country and the world. But God has answered us. I believe, and I’m certain that many Tanzanians believe, that the corona disease has been eliminated by God,” Magufuli added.
Mr Magufuli also commended the priest and worshippers for not wearing gloves and masks to protect themselves from the virus because this can eventually be use to infect them with the deadly virus.
It should be recalled that Magufuli has been one of the most beleaguered leader in Africa, notably from his remarks during these unprecedented days of Coronavirus.
