Zanzibar’s vice president has died of the coronavirus
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Gebreisus made the statement after the coronavirus killed the vice-president of Zanzibar, a part of Tanzania, on February 17.
The head of the civil service died the same day, but the cause of his death was not named.
Once again, I urge Tanzania to start reporting COVID-19 patients and sharing relevant data. I also call on the authorities to implement health measures known to be effective in stopping the spread of the virus and to prepare for vaccination,
– it is said in the statement of the head of the WHO.
Tedros Adhanom Gebreisus also stressed that people living in Tanzania who went abroad were diagnosed with coronavirus. So, he is in the country, and the government must “take thorough measures to protect its own population and the population of other countries.”
According to the Voice of America, Tanzania is almost the only tourist country that did not require anything from tourists throughout the pandemic – no tests, no certificates, not even written receipts of health.
For the first time in May 2020, Tanzanian President John Magufuli declared that Tanzania had become “free of coronavirus through prayer.”
