Note that noted that COVID-19 has affected more than 160 countries around the world. Tanzania is not immune to this outbreak. The pandemic has been reported in three regions and more than 530 contacts are being followed up, 20 confirmed cases and one death due to this epidemic. This is a reason to mount various activities of preparation and effective response to this threat to public health.
