President Museveni addressed the nation live from State House guiding Ugandans on the way forward as the 21-day lock-down he instituted earlier, comes to an end tomorrow 5th May 2020.
The president said that they have confirmed what they already suspected, that the danger, was coming from Dubai, UK, USA, China etc and from the neighboring countries. They did this identification through quarantine and tracing their contacts. They have tested 38,845 people. Only 89 have been found with the virus.”
“The question is how do you avoid mass infection but not cause suicide? By dispersing concentrations of people and allowing farming, manufacturing, construction, transport of cargo and essential services to continue.”
“All Ugandans need to know, is that it is suicidal to advocate for the banning of lorries coming into the country. In that case we shall not be fighting an intelligent war. What we also need to do is ask our granddaughters to avoid being with the truck-drivers.”
“Ugandans are going to be famous now. We are now making sanitizers. We can supply sanitizers to the whole world. We are now self sufficient on this
“We cannot allow the schools to open. If you do, you have to tackle the public transport matter. The risks are too high. Let the grandchildren stay at home. Even if they miss a term or even a year, it is better.
Factories need wholesalers to buy their products. We shall allow wholesalers to open but they must follow the guidelines.
Hardware shops are also allowed to open. We shall allow the opening of the repair mechanics and garages.
We shall allow the wholesalers to operate but they should be protected with a mask. Clients should be four metres apart. These warehouses should not have air conditioning on, but open the windows.”
“We discussed the issue of private cars but said no. Therefore companies should get buses to transport their workers. People can also use bicycles or walk. And those who go to work must go home and nowhere else. Everyone going out in public should wear a mask. The mask stops the virus from spreading far. The droplets are trapped in the mask.”
“With these limited measures of opening up, we must maintain the other measures of social distancing, keeping four metres apart, and staying home if unwell. The health teams will come and check you at home.
All the other measures like closure of schools, suspension of religious gatherings and so on, remain in place for 14 days. We will review them close to when the 14 days elapse. “President Museveni added.
