President John Magufuli had instructed Tanzanian security forces to check the quality of coronavirus testing kits after goat and fruit test positive.
The Twitter post by Ahmed Mohamed dated 3 May 2020 states that John Magufuli president of Tanzia declared that the COVID-19 tests kits used in Tanzania were faulty. He also revealed that several non-human samples sent to the National lab tested positive for COVID-19 including samples from a Papaya, a goat and a sheep. Reports suggested that John Magufuli had instructed Tanzanian security forces to check the quality of the kits. Thus they had randomly obtained several non-human samples labelled with names of humans with fake names and age.
