Resume of Daily life routine in Tanzania

After a deep research and analysis.With Standard Precaution Procedures in place, the Government made a tough decision to open all Universities in 01st June 2020 and presented in line all precaution and action strategies to be taken in-case of the outbreak. One Month later after examining the Covid-19 situation and satisfied that the Country is safe, the Government opened all Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary on 29th June 2020.The same day social services were also allowed including all mass gathering such as marriages ceremonies, burial gatherings, and Entertainment sectors including Pubs, Bars, and Clubs, not to forget the famous National league Soccer Championship played at the National stadium which has a seating capacity of 65’000 people at once. All resumed since then till to-date and we didn’t get any new outbreak. On 26th August, all political rallies were inaugurated as we move towards out National election on 28th October 2020. We all know and you have seen in Social media, TV’s, etc. the gatherings of thousands of people the election campaigners can bring together in this time.

Free from Lock down

Since we didn’t know how long the Virus would stay terrorizing our home, the government didn’t activate the internal Lock-down strategy as we believed it would result a more deadly situation than the Virus itself due to the life style of our people. Following the drop-down of Covid-19 infection, in May 2020 the government opened the airspacefor business, humanitarian, diplomatic, emergency and other special flights were allowed to land, take off and fly across the country's skies as it was before.The 14 days quarantine mandatory rule for all arrival were also dismissed, enabling passengers and tourist to visit the Country without wasting their planned days in isolation.
