Magufuli against Covid-19 vaccines

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-Tanzania’s president John Magufuli has warned health officials in the country against acquiring Covid-19 vaccines which could harm the population.

Magufuli made the remarks during the launch of a public forest in Chato, Geita Region on Wednesday, January 27.

In his speech, the president also disclosed that he is aware that some Tanzanians left the country to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and instead, they have returned home infected with a “strange” coronavirus.

According to Magufuli, the vaccinations are dangerous and the ministry of healthy in the country should do research before administering the vaccines to avoid being used as ‘guinea pigs’.

Magufuli also called into question why foreign nations had not found vaccinations for AIDS, Malaria or Cancer if they had good intentions with the COVID-19 vaccine.

He added that the country managed to contain the virus and that people are taking precautions coupled with prayers and traditional medicine, including steam inhalation to deal with coronavirus.

He urged Tanzanians to continue trusting God who has protected the country from Covid-19 pandemic.

Last year, Magufuli declared Tanzania free of Covid-19 and stopped publishing official data about coronavirus in the country in June, 2020.
