Looking at Tanzania, the situation there makes Trump's handling of the pandemic almost angelic

If a country of 58 million people can totally ignore the virus as death rates increase, then there will always be a reservoir for the virus to play around in.

Reading between  the lines it sounds like a poor country that can't afford to vaccinate. This is where the WHO should step up and pay for the program. But their prime minister does make a good point about a vaccine for HIV.

You can't fix stupid.

Of course it was a heart problem.....as with all dead people:  their heart stopped working when they died. 


I heard from the BBC report that 4 people have been arrested for "spreading rumours on social media that the President was ill."

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-03-26/most-mutated-covid-19-variant-yet-found-in-tanzania-travelers

The most mutated variant of the coronavirus yet was found in travelers from Tanzania, prompting scientists to call for greater monitoring in a country that has largely ignored the pandemic. 

report submitted to the World Health Organization and regional bodies shows the strain has 10 more mutations than found on any other version, according to Tulio de Oliveira, director of Krisp, a scientific institute that carries out genetic testing for 10 African nations. Krisp, which discovered a new strain in South Africa last year that propelled a resurgence of infections in the country, found the new variant in travelers arriving in Angola from Tanzania.



“It is potentially of interest,” de Oliveira said in an interview on Friday.



Variants of the coronavirus have caused concern globally as, for instance, the one first identified in South Africa known as 501Y.V2 has proven more infectious and able to more easily evade some vaccines. Still, no work has been done yet on the version found in three Tanzanian travelers to ascertain whether it is more infectious or severe than other strains.

DJ-Since there still is/was some travel between Tanzania and China why China did not detect this ? [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China%E2%80%93Tanzania_relations[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China%E2%80%93Tanzania_relations ???
