Kwa mujibu wa protocol za EAC,hicho ni kama kikao cha ujirani mwema tu hakina impact yoyote.

Hao vibaraka waliwahi eti kuanzisha CoW Coalition of the willing,wameishia wapi?

CORONAVIRUS: East Africa leaders to harmonize sharing of virus tests

- Information sharing key during crisis such as COVID-19 pandemic, says regional bloc

Leaders from the East African region met via videoconference on Tuesday to discuss ways of bolstering the region’s fight against COVID-19.

The meeting was attended by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, Rwandan President Paul Kagame, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and South Sudan President Salva Kiir.

The conference chaired by Kagame, as the current chairperson of the regional bloc “agreed to adopt a harmonized system for certification and sharing of COVID-19 test results,” a communique issued at the end of the meeting reads in part.

Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli and Burundian President Pierre Nkurunziza did not participate in the meeting ostensibly because they have taken a different path in their response to the novel coronavirus.

In lockdown, the EAC countries closed their land borders to incoming and outgoing traffic in a bid to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but movement of cargo trucks continues.

A recent spike in coronavirus numbers in the regional countries has been blamed on cross-border truck drivers.

Underlining the need for information sharing during crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic, the leaders called for adoption of a regional digital surveillance and tracking system for drivers and crew on COVID-19 for immediate use, the communique said.

The presidents also noted that the region’s key economic sectors are experiencing a slowdown as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic such as agriculture, trade, manufacturing and industry, tourism, hospitality and entertainment.

This, they said, necessitates establishment of special purpose financing schemes for small and medium enterprises to cushion them from the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The East African Business bloc in its April report urged governments in East Africa to earmark additional funds for the tourism sector which it said faces revenue losses of more than $5.4 billion in 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The leaders meanwhile stressed that partner states should prioritize regional value supply chains and support local production of essential medical products and supplies including masks, sanitizers, soaps, processed foods, ventilators as part of efforts to combat COVID-19 pandemic in the region.

Partner states, the presidents added, should facilitate farmers to continue farming activities during the pandemic and post-COVID-19 period, support agro-processing and supply chains as an import substitution measure.

The East African Community COVID-19 response plan unveiled at end of April entails scaling up sensitization programs and awareness creation on the virus while strengthening surveillance capacity at all key border points.

The confirmed COVID-19 cases in Africa reached more than 66,000 as of Tuesday, with more than 22,000 recoveries and 2,300 deaths, according to figures by the World Health Organization.

Anzeni kuandaa hata mgombea wenu wa uraisi, bado miezi miwili na nusu(wiki 10) kampeni zianze. Hii kiki ya Corona imeshabuma. Uingereza wameanza taratibu kurudi maofisini na kufanya mazoezi mitaani na kutembeleana leo.

Ligi za Ujerumani zinaanza wiki hii jumamosi, Italy tarehe 25. USA majimbo mengi yanaondoa lockdown next week.

Hizo nchi za EAC zinazoiga kila kitu zitaachia raia soon waingie mtaani. Mambo yanarudi normal before mid June. Tafuteni kiki nyingine.
Rubbish& Nonsense.
Kwa hiyo unaona kuondoa Lockdown itasaidia nini? Bado watu wanapukutika Marekani, Russia,UK, Italy etc.
Mfano hai wa ufanisi (efficience) wa Lockdown ni China ambayo ilikuwa the epicentre of Covid-19!

Na unaamini China hakuna anayekufa kwa Corona almost wiki 2 sasa??, Fikiria vizuri, point yangu ni kwamba kila nchi I deal na Corona inavyoona, msijifanye nyie ndo mnaijua sana Corona. Kwa taarifa yako China bado wanakufa lakini huruhusiwi kuongelea popote wala kupost kitu ndani ya China.

Sifurahishwe na jinsi Magu anavyo handle hii Corona lakini sipendi East Africa Community toka hawa wajinga walivyomtenga JK na CoW sijawahi kuwaheshimu tena.

Nchi pekee East Africa ambayo wanawaheshimu Watanzania nadhani ni Warundi lakini hawa wapumbavu wengine wana ujirani wa kinafiki.
kaka tatizo lao sio ujirani wa kinafiki tu il wao kwa wao wanashindana nani kati yao anapendwa sana na wazungu sasa watu wa aina hii hawatatusaidia chochote kwa sasa tuishi nao kwa tahadhari kama tunavyoishi na covid 19.

Acha kupotosha watu akiwemo Jiwe wako. Hivi unajua maana ya Uhusiano au Diplomacy ya Kimataifa au unapayuka tu?’
Tanzania isn't an Island and can never walk alone. Kama Magufuli hataki kushirikiana na Viongozi wenzake kudhibiti Covid-19 unategemea kitu gani?

Kwani walipoamua lockdown na kufunga mipaka walishirikiana na nani?

Duh! We live in the same world friend. The impact in one country affects others. No wonder China is being blamed on how it handled the virus when it started. So you cannot divorce from blame if you go different and has an impact to others.
