In the world’s most egregious Covid-19 coverup: secret funerals, a dead president

DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania – Tucked away in the northern suburbs of this sprawling East African city lies a cemetery that is evidence of one of the world’s largest coronavirus cover-ups.

At Kondo Cemetery in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, unmasked volunteers dug holes and felled trees to expand an area that has tripled since last year. During the first wave of the pandemic, government officials suitable for hazardous materials came at night to secretly bury the dead, graveyard workers and relatives said. Now small groups of mourners gather for hasty ceremonies alongside floral tributes.
