The Tanzanian government has announced that all travellers from the countries affected by Coronavirus will remain at least 14 days in the University of Dar es Salaam’s famous ‘Magufuli’s hostel’.

The order of the hostel will no longer exist during the time for the quarantine with the purpose of controlling their conduct at 24 hours.

“We have seen in Iringa there were travellers that we had put in quarantine in one of the hotels but they escaped,” Regional Commissioner Paul Makondo noted.

 Therefore, to control the conduct of the travellers who come into our country and protect the many Tanzanians the ministry has seen it better to put them in one place (Magufuli’s hostel).

“There will be protection for 24 hours, the Dar es Salaam RC, Paul Makonda will stand closely under the ministry,” Minister of Health Ummy Mwalimu stated.
