Tanzanian President ask if goats, pawpaws can be quarantined after they tested positive for Coronavirus



​Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli shocked residents after he revealed that pawpaws and goats had tested positive for the deadly coronavirus.

Magufuli, who was addressing a congregation on Sunday, expressed his disappointment of the country’s National Referral Laboratory for what he termed as failure to be keen when doing the tests.

“We noticed that they were producing so many positive results and I asked the security officials to go and conduct an investigation of what was really going on. I suspected it could have been sabotage (to declare many positive results because this is a political war)” Magufuli said.

He went ahead to illustrate how they tricked the national laboratory by bringing in different samples of fruits and animals which were marked as human samples to confirm his assertions.

“However, when we took the sample of pawpaw and marked it ‘Elizabeth Ane, female, 26-year-old’, the results came out positive for coronavirus.
