President Museveni Commissions Covid-19 Laboratories At Entebbe International Airport

President Museveni took to Entebbe International Airport to commission a number of Covid 19 testing laboratories. Mr Museveni said that they will use these laboratories to test all the incoming passengers into the country.

He went ahead to say that this will be mandatory. Museveni also commended the good work the Civil Aviation Authority and the Army Brigade at the Airport are doing.

“I am pleased to commission the Entebbe International Airport COVID-19 laboratories. These will be used as government testing facilities (mandatory) for all incoming passengers through our airport. I commend the good work by @UgandaCAA and the Army Brigade,” President Museveni said.

Gen Museveni instructed the personnel at the airport to start the testing right away and not sleep on their jobs.

“These people told me they needed a few days to construct a canopy as well, I have no problem with it, but I asked them to start the process of testing that very moment. The rest can come while testing is going on,” Gen Museveni added.

Uganda is one of the countries that has been putting up stringent measures in the region.

Whereas other countries such as Tanzania, Rwanda, Kenya have loosened up some of their lockdown measures, Uganda is still upholding them.

There is hope however that if the country can manage to vaccinate at least 4.8 million people by January 2022, they will fully reopen the economy.

Meanwhile, more vaccines arrived in the country earlier this week.

Furthermore, the Ministry of Health spokesperson Emmanuel Ainebyona revealed this information.

“More Vaccines arrive: 464,800 doses of Johnson and Johnson vaccine procured by govt of Uganda through the
@_AfricanUnion will land today at Entebbe International Airport at 22:20hrs
Tomorrow, more 808,800 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine from COVAX and France at 22:20hrs,” he said.
