Forget handshakes, Magufuli debuts foot shakes as Coronavirus spreads

Tanzanian President John Magufuli is wary of contracting Coronavirus and thus he is opting to greet his guests in other ways.

Tanzania’s State House has shared a picture of President John Magufuli exchanging a foot greeting with opposition politician Maalim Seif Sharif Hamad.

He was observing new measures by the health ministry to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Governments around the world, including Tanzania, have advised people to avoid hugging, kissing and shaking hands to prevent the spread of the virus.

Tanzania has not registered any suspected cases. Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Nigeria and Senegal are the only countries in Africa to report positive cases of the coronavirus.

The deadly virus, which broke out in January in China’s central city of Wuhan, has killed more than 3,000 people globally.

Most of the deaths are in China but over the past few days, there were nine times more new infections outside China than inside.

Handshaking is big part of the African heritage where many African communities greet each other by shaking hands often for about a minute. It is also a sign of respect if your hand is shaken apart from the regular word of mouth greetings.
