“According to President John Magufuli, who ordered officials to stop reporting COVID-19cases last May, when there were 509 infections and 21 deaths, Tanzania is COVID-19-free; an alleged status the country shares with North Korea and Turkmenistan. In a bizarre scene last month, Magufuli praised China’s foreign minister, Wang Yi, for not wearing a face mask during a visit to the country, as though this were a good thing.”
