Let me know the following for sec of others: 1.  There are many types of masks observed in the community, but which type of masks (PPE) is more effective to protect COVID -19  ? 2. Is there any plan to position  COVID 19  testing kits to each region or referral hospitals of Tanzania to speed up and give wide chance of more people to be tested.? 3. How do we insure the more risk staff  (our Doctors and nurses) who attend patients of COVID-19 ?  4. COVID 19 can be transmitted by air? 5. What can we do to overcome the problem of false positives and false negatives as we fight against COVID-19 6. the article published in late March in JAMA reported that blood as a specimen can only account for 1% detection of cases,  isn't this a threat that many affected countries using blood only as confirmatory specimen are likely having more false negatives? 7. Barakoa(Max) zakushona mtu zinausalama? Kwani saivi baadhi wanaambiwa unaweza kushona kitambaa ikawa Barakoa
Jane Magigita

Naomba mtoe muda kujadili khs matumizi ya barakoa hasa kwd makundi tete, na ambayo hayana uwezo wa kununua barakoa za viwandani au medical approved face masks.Kwa kuwa mm ni kiongozi na muhamasishaji hasa wa wanawake wafanyabiashara sokoni nipeni uhakika wa masks zipi anaweza tumia mwanamke mfanyabiashara sokoni. ukizingatia vipato vidogo walivyonavyo

What can we do to overcome the problem of false positives and false negatives as we fight against COVID-19. Also, the article published in late March in JAMA reported that blood as a specimen can only account for 1% detection of cases, isn't this a threat that many affected countries using blood only as confirmatory specimen are likely having more false negatives?

is there any role of cloth mask on prevention of covid 19? many hospitals and individuals are resorting to cloth masks as surgical masks are not available at large. kindly clarify
Eric van Praag

Mwisho- how effective it will be to cut short the duration of COVID 19 pandemic if everyone wears a cloth mask?
Tina Lasway

Welcome Eric. Glad to have you on board.
Dr Godwin Munuo
48:59
Eric can you share the screen
Raymond Bandio
49:39
Erick share screen please
Joel Andwilege
49:45
Dr MINJA, Any slides to follow??
Joel Andwilege
50:41
Its Ok Dr. You just continue
Ryan Shallom
52:45
Dr. Minja... Tanzania is an informal & rural dominant society... Implementing any restrictions or intrusive measures in dealing with this pandemic is going to have serious challenges and risks. Sad as it may be, testing is a challenge in itself and may not reach the required levels. So while dealing with the dynamics of mobilization & containment, what can the populace do to remain resilient to this virus? Best practice lifestyle habits must be widely & loudly voiced. Though pure speculation on my part, I strongly believe the virus has been in Tanzania since the festive season...
Lucy Mphuru
56:26
Eric is there a database of available CHWs in Tanzania?
Naomi Mwasambili
56:55
so glad to hear the importance of community workers being stressed and showcased finally
Joel Andwilege
58:54
Centralization of testing is one of the great barrier in our battle against this deadly pandemic. you can just imagine, a person in Nyasa who feels unwell, when reports at health facility and suspected of COVID-19, he/she is to be isolated for some days waiting for test results from DSM. This poses a high risk to HCWs. labs at regional or zonal level wew
Joel Andwilege
59:29
labs at regional level were to be equiped for testing
Naomi Mwasambili
01:01:05
why is the training over a year
Johnson Joachim
01:03:54
Do we have this standardized training/ orientation package of COVID 19 in Tanzania? I will be glad to have this document through my email which can be used to further our efforts towards curbing the pandemic.
Johnson Joachim
01:04:19
the training to these CHWs
Vicent Manyilizu
01:04:37
GAVI should support for paying CHCWs should be laveraged to allow them serve other non GAVI supported programs
Makunda Kassongo
01:05:25
How quickly can we use Digital health Technology to enable CHWs by giving people a way to check if they are at risk of the virus, At the same time, through technology and CHWs linking them to the right place to get help.
Christine Thompson Mosore
01:05:40
I second that....bottom up approach
Vicent Manyilizu
01:06:36
I agree with them being instrumental in addressing the fear in the community.
Aidan Eyakuze
01:07:44
can anyone confirm how many have been tested for C-19 in Tanzania? Is it around 400 people? Where is this crucial data point available?
Donatus Mutasingwa
01:08:43
Dr. Van Praag-very insightful analysis of the potential role of community health workers. How easy is it to pluck CHWs from TB or malaria and use them for COVID without disrupting services
Evance Ndabila Mgeyi
01:09:54
No one confirms anything except the ministry of health
Tegemea Mwalingo
01:10:18
I think they have not been saying how many have been tested. Its kind of challenging to evaluate the trends with missing data.
Bruno Mmbando
01:11:45
I understand that some of CHWs are paid by the Government. Eg in Morogoro where SolidaMed have been working for some years now. These are working mainly in maternal and community health programs. We have also been able to work with them in other program including onchocerciasis and epilepsy
Jane Magigita
01:12:47
CHW preparedness and lack of Govt proclamation on their role in Covid response, in any is not there. Are we late? I think we are... What are other available options then?
Chambi Chachage
01:13:43
Aidan by March 26 we had tested 273, so isn’t 400 an underestimate ?
Festo Rwihura
01:15:01
Should we think of having partial lock down in Dar es salaam?
Sam Temu
01:17:07
lets sell our Dreamliner and buy more ventilators masks more testing kits and build more hospitals
Aidan Eyakuze
01:17:10
I’m intrigued by the Doctor’s observation that self motivated social distancing could be more effective than social distancing that is officially enforced!
Vicent Manyilizu
01:18:14
May be @ Festo. Looking at our potential direction in relation to the transmission trend
Aidan Eyakuze
01:18:49
Sweden (voluntary); France, Nigeria (officially enforced). Hardly makes a difference in transmission rates!
Bruno Mmbando
01:18:59
WHere is serikali failing to instate mask warering policyKwanini serikali imeshindwa
Donatus Mutasingwa
01:20:04
@Aidan-I also don’t think may you may achieve lockdown without enforcement of some sort
Vicent Manyilizu
01:20:05
We need to empower our surveillance team, decentralize testing and get more people tested
Agnetta Kamugisha
01:20:18
@Sam nobody is buying planes because people are not flying. It will take a long time for the air industry to recover. Thousands of planes are parked in various deserts around the world
Naomi Mwasambili
01:20:22
But lockdown without a thought of the many people working in the cash economy is shifting one health problem to another. Distances is key but we so not wish starvation upon people.
Raymond Bandio
01:20:54
Public Masks wearing guidance should come from the MOH , I don't think if its clearly being stipulated by the politicians
Samwel Maphie
01:20:59
Masks wearing has had some social stigma. People being mocked and laughed at...this makes it difficult for people to wear it. Thought?
John Njonjo
01:21:04
responsible behavior is the key
Chambi Chachage
01:21:33
Like in Sweden?
Sia Mawalla
01:21:55
You can bring msala wako msikitini..
Redempta Mbatia
01:21:58
How realistic is it to have people responsibly keep distance (cultural change) when even personnel hygiene is a problem?
Vicent Manyilizu
01:22:48
Social distancing have not been implemented in TZ, here is where we have not done much. Masoko yako very crowded. Makanisani nako bado issue ile ile. May be we need to have polices at these sort of places
Rama Ponda
01:22:55
These contradictions, amongst medical specialists is what adds to the general confusion. Why isn’t there a consensus amongst medical professionals with matter related to public safety?
Laus Mwakalebela
01:23:14
Also Mosque you have to wash your hand, face and feet before you go in
Chambi Chachage
01:24:18
Kwenye mosque ndani (kiimani) si wanapaswa kuswali karibu karibu na kutoacha nafasi?
Christine Thompson Mosore
01:24:31
The wearing of masks needs training on how to wear and care for the masks ...is that information being provided to the citizens?
Abbas Tuli
01:24:33
in mosque ablution is always practiced routinely
Abbas Tuli
01:24:58
Italy hotspot started in a religious gathering...
Agnetta Kamugisha
01:25:11
even here in the US people are walking around without masks.
Hamza
01:25:53
Keeping distance is a big challenge especially in markets,transportation this should be enforced
Helga Naburi
01:26:04
A big problem i am seeing with masks is the way people are wearing them, can we use the HCW to assist the community members to wear them correctly?
Aisa Muya
01:26:49
today it was instructed that all Dar residents should wear masks every time we go out. no more issue of stigma . and people wear different type , fabric and colors
Petronila Mlowe
01:27:24
Talking of masks, the pores in kitenge may allow virus to pass through. It depends on the pore size. for instance we encourage chefs to use bead snoods and cover the hair however staphylococcus pass through. What is your take on this?
jacqueline shoo
01:27:26
huku Tz hata wale ambao ni high risk hawavai mask yoyote, elimu bado iendelee la sivyo tutakwisha
Christine Thompson Mosore
01:27:39
Reusing the masks without the people knowing how to properly care for the masks also increases the risk of spreading the virus...I believe this is where the Gov’t and CHWs can come in
Abraham Kataza
01:28:21
This thing tests the streghth and stability of country's governance. Doctors. Doctors have no final say,the only thing they can so is advise

Getrud Mollel

I am afraid there is a lot of misinformation regarding the use of cloths masks in the general public. Cloths masks are advocated to minimize the risk of transmission FROM the wearer. Wearing a mask reduces projection of respiratory droplets and/or saliva from the wearer. It should be clear that the cloths masks DO NOT to protect the wearer.
