“The corona disease has been eliminated thanks to God,” Mr Magufuli told worshippers in a church in the capital, Dodoma.

“I want to thank Tanzanians of all faiths. We have been praying and fasting for God to save from the pandemic that has afflicted our country and the world. But God has answered .

“I believe, and I’m certain that many Tanzanians believe, that the corona disease has been eliminated by God,” he told worshippers on Sunday in Dodoma.

His remarks were welcomed with applause and celebratory ululation.

Mr Magufuli also commended the priest and worshippers for not wearing gloves and masks to protect themselves from the virus.

The World Health Organization () has expressed concern over the government’s strategy on Covid-19.

The government has stopped publishing data on the number of cases in the country.
