President Samia Suluhu Hassan seems to have hit the ground running. She is working around the clock to make sure that Tanzania acts on one of the worst pandemics in modern history. Coronavirus was largely ignored by President Magufuli and at one time said the East African country had been completely healed of Corona.
When President Samia assumed power following the untimely death of Magufuli, one of her first executive decision was to form a COVID-19 taskforce. It is now emerging that the presidency through ministry of health has installed medical oxygen producing plants in major hospitals.
The government is closely working with World Health Organisation and western countries. The plants which have a capacity to produce 200 oxygen cylinders per day has been sponsored by WHO. During his time, Magufuli shunned international bodies saying they were meddling in Tanzania affairs. During his last days, he advocated for use of steaming booths as a means to cure COVID-19. WHO warned Tanzania at that time saying there was no scientific evidence that the booths could cure coronavirus.
