HeadlineMay 05, 2021

Tanzania announced new measures on travelers entering the country to prevent the spread of COVID-19 variants. The move comes two months after Samia Suluhu Hassan replaced the late John Magufuli, who downplayed the pandemic, as Tanzania’s president.

In the Seychelles, which has the world’s highest vaccination rate, officials are closing schools and reimposing other restrictions as infections surge. Over 60% of the Seychelles’ adult population is fully vaccinated.
