Yesterday, the 10th of April 2020, 439 people in Uganda were tested for Covid-19 and all were negative. This means they do not have the virus.
None of them was from quarantine. One group comprised people who had interacted with the infected returnees (i.e. some of the 53 who have been confirmed as positive).
In the language of the Ministry of Health these are called “Contacts”, meaning they interacted with the infected people.
This means that although they came near the infected people, these “contacts” probably observed the safeguard measures we have been preaching. This is good news for the country.
The other group are people who volunteered to be tested because they had a cold or some symptoms close to those of the virus. They are called the “Alert” group in the language of the Ministry of Health.
The Minister of Health has also told me that 3 out of the 53 infected persons have defeated covdi-19 virus and will soon be discharged from hospital.
This means since Thursday, Uganda hasn’t got any other coronavirus positive patients. This sounds good.
The minister will give us more details. President urges all Ugandans to continue observing the guidelines they have been given.
