  • Tanzania has recorded 100 cases of Covid-19 in the third wave, 70 patients of whom are in critical condition and on ventilators, Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan said Monday.
  • She spoke during a meeting with editors at the State House in Dar es salaam Monday evening.
  • This is the first time in more than a year that Tanzania is releasing Covid statistics. It last released Covid-19 data in April 2020 and the then President John Magufuli’s administration denied Covid existence in the country.
  • President Samia has adopted a completely different approach to dealing with the pandemic since ascending to power on March 19, following Magufuli’s death on March 17.
