President Magufuli said he would not close borders since he respect his neighbours and does not want to ruin their economies
He also said his son recovered from coronavirus after self-medicating with homemade remedies, adding that he is doing better
Magufuli says COVID-19 infections are dwindling at a higher rate and he will soon open schools and allow sporting activities
Tanzania president John Pombe Magufuli has revealed that his child recovered from COVID-19 after taking lemons and ginger.
Magufuli said the child isolated himself after contracting the virus and self-medicated using the said “remedies” after which he completely recovered.
Speaking in a church service on Sunday, May 17, the president said the child was doing well and even doing push-ups after beating coronavirus.
On border closure, Magufuli said he found it illogical and unnecessary and he would not go down that path.
“And that was why I did not close up the boundaries because I respect my neighbours and if I do so, I will have denied them their economy,” the president said.
He also said flights would be allowed into his country since some airlines had booked flights into Tanzania up to August and those tourists would not be required to quarantine.

“When they arrive and their temperatures are taken and no symptoms of coronavirus, there is no need for quarantine. Let them go and spectate on animals,” Magufuli said.
