Covid-19: It is business as usual in Tanzania

While countries in the world are experiencing a total or partial lockdown due to the Covid-19, Tanzania is dancing to a different tune. It is business as usual in the largest East African country. All systems and sectors are running as usual.

Children are still going to school, churches are operating as usual, and the public transport is still operating normally.

Tanzania has so far reported 13 cases of Covid-19 with no deaths. The government is still holding on to the wait-and-see approach. There no measures in place yet to combat an outbreak of the pandemic.

Uganda closed its borders to try and curb the epidemic. In the latest move to reduce new infections, Kenya has put forward a curfew from 7 pm to 5 am. Zanzibar, which has so far reported 2 cases, closed its tourist hotels and banned all in and out travels.

Rwanda, which has confirmed 36 cases of Covid-19, imposed a total lockdown. The police force has been tasked to ensure that everyone stays indoors until advised otherwise. The landlocked country has closed its borders and banned flights except for the ones delivering essential goods.

Burundi has not reported any case of Covid-19. However, they have put in stringent measures in preparedness for the pandemic. They suspended flights and set up a campaign on personal hygiene. However, social gatherings are still evident.
