Positivity Rate Of Covid-19 Raises Concern In Ministry Of Health

The Ministry of Health has raised its concern over the increased positivity rate of Covid-19. Health experts and behavioral scientists say the decline in infections and deaths in the country made people relax on vaccination and observation of SOPs.

This has led to a reluctance of taking Covid-19 vaccines and booster doses.

Covid-19 positivity is now apparently at 4.8%. Dr Daniel Kyabayinze, Director of public health at Ministry Of Health, said cases have averaged 600 per week in the last two weeks.

“I think we are on the foot of another wave starting because we moved from an average of having 2-3 cases a day to 600 cases a week. Cases around the neighboring countries have been raising. We have been observing and when the other wave ended, we had a few cases left behind,” Dr. Kyabayinze said.

“People believed a lie that there was no more Covid-19 and this perception has really done more harm than good,” he added.

The vaccination centers still have a low turn up of people coming to take up the jabs. After the lifting of the lockdown, life went back to normal for some people.

Some washing points in different areas remained there for show and some even removed them which means it doesn’t matter anymore. Recently though, people were encouraged to start wearing their masks.
