Tanzania Sticks To Herbs As Covid-19 Cure


Tanzania has reportedly said it has no plans to import Covid-19 vaccines, instead pinning its hopes on research into “local herbs”.

In an interview with the East African newspaper, health ministry spokesperson Gerald Chami went on to cast doubt on the safety and efficacy of imported vaccines.

He said that development has been too rapid for effective testing.

Covid-19 vaccine tests meet rigorous international standards.

Tanzania’s approach to Covid-19 has been at odds with its East African neighbors, which have seen a recent surge in cases.

The country stopped reporting new cases at the end of April, and President John Magufuli said that the country was virus-free.
