Speaking during a church service in Chato, Magufuli said that his son isolated himself after which he self-treated with alternative medicine and has since recovered.
Herbs to treat coronavirus
According to Magufuli, his son inhaled boiled herbs and ate lemons and ginger. Surprisingly, the son is now well and can even do push-ups.
During the church service, Magufuli also noted that the covid-19 cases are reducing drastically in Tanzania despite fears that Tanzania could be recording more cases and deaths.
According to Magufuli, if the trend of the decreasing numbers goes on in the coming week, he will reopen schools and sports activities which he says are important at keeping Tanzanians entertained.
Earlier on, Magufuli had stated that the test kits that were being used to test for Covid-19 were faulty. He had claimed that samples from pawpaw and a goat had tested positive for coronavirus.
In a move aimed at curbing the spread of the disease, the Minister of Health Ummy Mwalimu also announced that trucks from Kenya would no longer be allowed to enter Tanzania. This came a day after Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta closed the Kenya-Tanzania and Kenya-Somali borders.
