A senior politician has sparked disbelief among Tanzanians by saying that coronavirus has “ended” and calling on the public to celebrate in the streets on Sunday.

Paul Makonda, who is regional commissioner of the country’s biggest city Dar es Salaam, even told residents which shops had 80%-off sales so they could buy new clothes to look their best as they party. His announcement that transmission of the virus had ended is not backed by any available data.
