Tanzania President John Magufuli, on Sunday announced that his government would not shut down churches and mosques over coronavirus .
According to the president, these are the only places where true healing can be found. “These Holy places are where God is. My fellow Tanzanians, let us not be afraid of going to praise Him,” he said.

President Magufuli went ahead and told a congregation in Tanzania where he had attended a church service that the Covid-19 virus is Satanic and cannot survive while in the “body of Christ”.

“Corona cannot survive in the body of Christ, it will burn. That is exactly why I did not panic while taking the Holy communion,” he said while the congregation cheered. Coronavirus cases in Tanzania so far stand at 12.
