Dodoma, Tanzania – Tanzanian schools as well as wedding events are set to resume operations by the end of this month after three months of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As a result of the reduced cases of Coronavirus in the country, I would like to take this opportunity to announce the reopening of all remaining schools, and all social activities that were restricted like wedding celebrations should also resume, life must go back to normal,” said the country’s President John Magufuli.

Earlier this month, the President declared Tanzania COVID-19 free as a result of divine intervention.

However, the President has been criticized for not implementing strict measures to curb the spread of the virus.

Tanzania has confirmed 509 COVID-19 cases, with 21 deaths, according to the data from Johns Hopkins University.

Last weekend, the country became the first African country to resume a national football league which was suspended during March because of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
