Tanzania President says his child recovered from COVID-19 after taking ginger and lemons. President John Pombe Magufuli has revealed that his child recovered from COVID-19 after taking lemons and ginger. Magufuli said the child isolated himself after contracting the virus and self-medicated using the said “remedies” after which he completely recovered. President Magufuli said his child recovered after using lemons and ginger.
Speaking in a church service on Sunday, May 17, the president said the child was doing well and even doing push-ups after beating coronavirus.
“My child got coronavirus, my own child that I brought into this world. The child locked himself in the room and treated self using lemons and ginger,”
Magufuli said. “I cannot lie when standing at the altar of God because I respect my God and so do not think that I have not faced this virus,” he added. On border closure, Magufuli said he found it illogical and unnecessary and he would not go down that path. “And that was why I did not close up the boundaries because I respect my neighbours and if I do so, I will have denied them their economy,” the president said.
He also said flights would be allowed into his country since some airlines had booked flights into Tanzania up to August and those tourists would not be quarantined.
