In Uganda, over three foreigners were fully checked at Entebbe hospital and tested negative. Ugandans shouldn’t worry much about the virus but must be aware that it spread to a few western countries.
The Minister of health for Primary Healthcare Dr. Moriku Joyce Kaducu (PhD) spoke to journalists in Kampala yesterday, Uganda has not yet confirmed any case of Corona Virus COVID-19.
Doctor Joyce further added that the risk of it’s importation persists at a higher rate since Uganda standardized an open entry policy for travelers from affected countries like China since they even have money income generating businesses, tourism and services.
“To date, a total of 722 travelers have been isolated for purposes of follow up.
