However, today unless you are looking for the topic personally, it is becoming close to impossible to hear anyone speaking of the subject.
This has been largely associated with the continued drop in daily cases of infections and deaths as well. They have continued to decline with only an average of 124 cases and only six deaths being reported per day, according to the Ministry of Health (MOH).
Statistics from the MOH indicate that at the peak of the Covid-19 second wave in June 2021, the country registered as high as 1,445 cases per day. On top of that, 57 deaths due to the pandemic were also being registered daily.
Therefore, this shows a 91% decline in Covid-19 cases. And 89% decline in pandemic-related deaths as compared to three months ago.
Yesterday, Health Minister Ruth Aceng said some regions are registering an increase in cases even though generally they have dropped.
She then hinted at the imminent possibility of a third wave hitting the country if they take no precautions.
‘’While the country continues to register a consistent drop in the number of confirmed cases since the peak of the second wave in June 2021, we are not yet where we were at the beginning of the second wave,’’ she said.
She said the hotspot districts in the country include Kampala city in Central Uganda, Soroti, Katakwi, Ngora, among other districts.
Dr. Aceng said what is driving the high transmission rate in the areas is majorly mass gatherings at burials and wedding ceremonies.
Currently, there are only 239 Covid patients in admission across the country according to the MOH. However, 25,000 people are undergoing home-based care.
