DODOMA-(MaraviPost)-President John Pombe Magufuli says Tanzania is recording promising results in this COVID-19 war.
Magufuli said that hospitals are recording few cases, with some which had over 150 patients only recording less than 20 patients this Sunday, 17 May, 2020.
Dr. Magufuli has said if the country will keep on recording this victory in this starting week, he will have everything to resume higher learning in Tanzania.
He also said that even the premier league that had been halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be recalled for completion.
“Kwa hali hii, kama wiki tunayoianza kesho itaendelea hivi nimepanga kufungua vyuo ili Wanafunzi wetu waendelee kusoma, lakini nimepanga pia kuruhusu michezo iendelee kwasababu michezo ni sehemu ya Burudani, maisha lazima yaendelee” said Magufuli, which loosely translates to:
(With this current situation, if the situation will remain this way starting from next week, I am planning to re-open colleges and universities so that our students can resume learning. I have also planned to resume all sporting activities because the sport is part of the entertainment, life must continue).
President Magufuli has also called upon Tanzanians to set aside three days for thanksgiving prayers to appreciate what God has done for them.
“I urge you my fellow Tanzanians, religious leaders, in the midst of this pandemic, if possible next week starting from Friday, Saturday and Sunday, we hold prayers and thank God for what he has done for us, we are asked to thank God for each and every situation we face, God has done great things for us, we need to thank Him,”
