President Raised Alarm as Goat and Pawpaw Test positive to covid-19 in Tanzania.

The President of TanzaniaJohn Pombe Magufuli has raised alarm by questioning the quality of imported test kits being used in the country, and has ordered that they should be checked and probed after goat and pawpaw fruit reportedly tested positive for Covid-19 in the country.

John Magufuli made this known while speaking at an event recently held at Chato, in the Northwest of Tanzania.

In his speech, he revealed that the imported covid-19 testing kits have “technical errors”.

According to him, he had instructed that non-human samples be randomly obtained from a pawpaw fruit, a sheep and a goat which were labeled fake human names and bio-data without the knowledge of the lab technicians.

Surprisingly, the President said he was amazed that the tests for the pawpaw fruit and goat came out positive.

Speaking further at the event, he revealed he has since ordered the Tanzanian health agency to subject the quality of the kits to clinical lab tests to help ascertain their effectiveness and reliability.

According to LIB, the president was quoted to have said;

“We extracted a sample from a goat which turned positive. This tells you that something is not adding up.

Are we now supposed to quarantine goats and fruits?” the President questioned.

Donald Trump Tells Americans to go back to work, people also die in car accidents.

Trump said that sending people back to work during the coronavirus epidemic is no big deal because people also die from the flu and car accidents.

Trump said during a Fox News virtual town hall, “Look, we lose thousands, I brought some numbers here. We lose thousands and thousands of people a year to the flu. We don’t turn the country off. I mean every year, now when I heard the number, 37,000 people a year, can you believe that? This year we’re having a bad flu season, but we lose thousands of people a year to the flu. We never turned the country off. We lose much more than that to automobile accidents. We didn’t call up the automobile companies and say stop making cars. We don’t want any cars anymore. We have to get back to work.”

The coronavirus is exponentially more deadly than the flu, but there is no vaccine or cure. The coronavirus also spreads more easily than the flu. The country responded to the rise in auto accident fatalities with seat belt laws and other safety measures.

Trump is suggesting that the coronavirus is no big deal, some people are going to die, so that shouldn’t stop the country from getting back to work.

The big thing to remember is that Donald Trump doesn’t have the power to lift the state restrictions. He can talk about reopening the economy, but there is nothing that he can do to force the states to lift the public health restrictions.

Trump is jeopardizing American lives because he is worried about his reelection campaign. The recession is coming no matter what Trump says, but the rhetoric that the president is spreading is dangerous and will get people killed.
