Tanzania captain Mbwana Samatta says he is doing as much as possible to avoid contracting the coronavirus.
The lethal striker is on the books of Aston Villa in England and he has discussed COVID-19 which has reportedly killed over 50,000 people worldwide.
“All I can do is try as much as possible to protect myself and family from Covid-19,” Samatta told Daily News.
“It is somewhat tricky to prevent but better try because prevention is better than cure. I take time to play with children, watch television and skip rope to burn calories.
“I am strictly following the training guidelines that were also given to me by coach.”
The United Kingdom (UK) has reportedly recorded over 30,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus.
“It is not that easy without playing football. I love football, it is my life, so it is difficult but we have to follow instructions,” he continued.
“I am good and okay at home in Birmingham…this is the second biggest city in England after London and already many cases have been reported.”
“It is very important to protect each one of us from against the disaster and pray to God that life returns to normal soon.
“The only important thing is to make sure they take all necessary measures not to spread infections,” he added.
“My advice to Tanzanians; do not make jokes about the virus, follow all the government and health authorities advise on how to protect yourselves and loved ones.”
