Decrying vaccines, Tanzania president says ‘God will protect’ from COVID-19

TANZANIA’S President John Magufuli says no lockdown was planned because God will protect people from COVID-19 while homespun precautions such as steam inhalation were better than vaccines. 

“Vaccines are not good and if they were good, whites would have brought even HIV/AIDS vaccine,” he said in a speech in western Tanzania, contradicting global scientific consensus and advice from the World Health Organization (WHO).
