Following the death of Tanzania's president John Pombe Magufuli who died on Wednesday, all eyes are now on the current Covid-19 situation in the country after going over 10 months without data.

Tanzania has not announced any data related to Covid-19 ever since April last year when the country's data stood at around 500 cases with 21 deaths.

However, there have been speculations that the country is still facing a silent pandemic of which the government under the leadership of the late John Magufuli, denied the claims arguing that the country was free from the pandemic.

But since there is no data or any other information related to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, it has been estimated that the situation in Tanzania "is not so good." This was the statement that was made by Citizen TV-based journalist Linus Kakai on Thursday when he was asked by CNN anchor concerning the Covid-19 situation in this East-African country.

Though Kakai claimed that Tanzania's situation is believed to be not good at all, he said that he drew the conclusions from the big numbers testing positive for the disease in the Kenya-Tanzania border.
