Tanzania: President Samia announces the construction of the country’s own vaccine factory

The Tanzanian president has announced that the country plans to produce its own vaccine against coronavirus and other diseases in the country.

During a visit to European Union Council President Charles Michel in Brussels, Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan said the country was also aiming to export vaccines to countries in eastern and southern Africa, according to a statement from the state house.

She said she was submitting a proposal for support to make the project a success.

The plan for a vaccine plant is a shift from the previous regime of her predecessor, John Magufuli, a prominent coronavirus sceptic, who died last year from heart complications.
