Tanzania President Magufuli bans fumigation claiming kills mosquitoes not Coronavirus

Tanzanian President John Magufuli

DODOMA-(MaraviPost)-Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli has shocked the world after claiming that fumigation being conducted does not kill coronavirus.

According to the head of state said that there is no proof the COVID-19 virus is killed by fumigation stating that such fumigation only kills mosquitoes and cockroaches.

He observed that if at all the fumigation helped then developed countries wouldn’t be battling the virus anymore.

“If that was the case then developed countries that have been fumigating their cities day and night could have already been rid of the novel coronavirus completely,” he said.

“There is no fumigation that kills coronavirus. The so-called fumigation that was done in Dar-es-Salaam is stupidity. You can’t kill coronavirus using chlorine. Such an exercise only eliminates mosquitoes and cockroaches,” he added.

He even went ahead to ban all fumigation exercises until further notice.

” From today I order that the ministry of health stops all limitations exercises in Tanzania unless we are killing mosquitoes and cockroaches,” he said.

What’s more Magufuli exhibited doubt about the donations to combat coronavirus coming from outside countries.

He observed that before the masks are used by the citizens the ministry of health should confirm that they are only laced with COVID-19.

He opined that first, they had to question the manufacturer and donor and know the motive behind the donation.

“We shouldn’t trust anything donated to us by foreigners, we could be catching coronavirus from the masks donated to us.

We must interrogate who manufactured the face masks who are donating them and the motive of their generosity,” he said.

  1. I think that ship sailed a long time ago. The definition of foreign in today’s Africa is very loose indeed; inter-marriages and trade/supply inter-travelling takes place almost on a daily basis. Foreign defined in terms of next village neighbour would perhaps fit the safe distance isolation; but some (now) adults born out of intermarriages do travel to see their grandparents in both China/Tanzania. Banning these would be against individual and human rights. Indeed TZ has more students studying in China (sponsored by China) who would indeed be one’s to ban. International bans would lead to tit-4-tat retaliation and possibly a collapse in diplomatic relations and economic disaster.

    Just follow measures adopted by other countries to minimise C-19 transmission until a vaccine is found.

  2. I like where President Magufuli is coming from. Foreigners should be kept at a distance. To this day we don’t know how the C-19 disease got started. It mutated into brain stroke mode when we were told it attacked the lungs. We have no evidence that it came from bat ingestion from any other source except China? Is China the only place where these bats are found? Tanzania wouldn’t have any C-19 if it weren’t for foreigners. Ban all foreign people to foreign only tourist traps. Don’t allow any Tz people near them.
