Tanzania COVID-19 response: Government accused of a coverup

Tanzania’s government is accused of sending out false messaging about COVID-19 and covering up a crisis.

Schools, universities and sporting events are set to restart in Tanzania next week as the country lifts its coronavirus restrictions.

Opposition politicians are accusing the government of covering up the true extent of the coronavirus crisis.

And the World Health Organization says there has been a lack of transparency in Tanzania’s handling of the outbreak.
