Tanzania has recorded it’s the first case of coronavirus disease.

Health Minister Ummy Mwalimu said the victim is a 46-year-old female citizen who traveled from Belgium and entered the country on March 15 through Kilimanjaro International Airport.

She transited through Sweden and Denmark. The Health Minister said the patient did not show any symptoms when she was temperature-screened at the airport.

But later at the airport, she started feeling unwell and went to hospital. The patient is being closely monitored at a hospital in Arusha city in northern Tanzania.

Ms Mwalimu insisted that the country is well prepared to respond to the outbreak and that officials are working closely with the WHO in efforts to contain the outbreak.
