Covid-19 cases are on the rise in Tanzania- These are the words by a Tanzania-based blogger who alleges that she has talked to a doctor who has disclosed to her that Covid-19 is still in the country and as the situation is, cases are likely to increase in the near future.
Tanzania has been among the African countries that stopped publishing their Covid-19 to the public for the reason the late former president termed as "Covid-19 is a scam" back in April last year when cases were around 500.
However, a Tanzania based blogger by the name Maria Sarungi Tsehai, on Twitter under the hashtag CoronaIpo, has alleged that she has talked to a doctor and the cases are still existing. Maria has further advised citizens to keep on observing the Covid-19 measures and guidelines.
"Bado #CoronaIpo wapendwa, Nimeongea na daktari anaeleza kesi zipo na trend inaonekana kuwa itaongezeka.Tahadhari muhimu.Tuendelee kula mananasi, kufanya mazoezi na mengineyo ila tusisahau pia kuvaa barakoa," Maria tweeted on Twitter.
The reports come days after cases of a new Covid mutant was discovered in the country. According to the reports that were published by Bloomberg, around seven travellers who landed in Angola early last week were tested positive for a new Covid-19 variant that was said to be 10 times lethal than the normal one.
Meanwhile, don't forget to wash your hands, wear a mask, keep social distance and avoid by all means unnecessary crowds.
