TANZANIAN PRESIDENT ASKS CITIZENS TO SHUN COVID-19 VACCINES, FOCUS ON PRAYERS
Tanzanian President John Magufuli has encouraged citizens of his country to opt for prayers rather than the Covid-19 vaccines due to arrive in some parts of Africa.
The President warned the country’s health ministry against rushing into embracing the vaccines promoted by foreign companies and countries.
Magufuli cast doubt on the global urge to develop Covid-19 vaccine claiming that little has been done to help cure other diseases like tuberculosis, HIV-Aids, malaria among other infections.
Little is known in Tanzania on the number of positive cases due to the government’s stun position on the virus.
Tanzania’s President John Pombe Magufuli had declared the East African country as Covid-free and did not place any curfew or confinement to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
Tanzania is among the first countries in Africa to order for the touted Madagascar Covid herb in the fights against the virus.
