Tanzanian President John Magufuli has declared the Eastern African country free of COVID-19.
This is coming after the World Health Organization (WHO) expressed concern over the government’s strategy on the pandemic, especially in publishing the data on the number of the cases recorded in the country.
Magufuli attributed the success over the pandemic to prayers and fasting that the people embarked upon. He further commended the priest and worshippers for not wearing gloves and masks to protect themselves from the virus.
“It gives me joy to be the leader of a country that puts God first, God loves Tanzania. The works of the devil will always be defeated in Tanzania because Tanzanians love God and that is why even the corona has been defeated by God“, he said.
