Tanzania president John pombe magufuli has ordered a 3 day national prayer day for the country to pray as covid-19 numbers surge.
Magufuli who had earlier dismissed the reality that covid-19 is a serious virus is now coming to terms and instead of engaging other containment measures like lockdoown he has opted to seek devine intervention.
This has come after Zanzibar’s First Vice President Seif Sharif Hamad succumbed to the virus on Wednesday. Reports further suggests that top ranking government officials are also fighting for their lives due to the virus with others seeking urgent medication in Kenya.
Maguli has constantly downplayed the virus insisting that he would not sanction the covid vaccine in Tanzania.
