Uganda’s Coronavirus Cases Hit 100 As Two More Truck Drivers Test Positive

Ministry of Health on Wednesday evening registered two new coronavirus cases bringing a total number of confirmed cases to 100 in Uganda.

The new cases are again cargo truck drivers from Kenya who entered the country in Eastern part via Malaba border entry point. The patients are both Eritrean and Kenyan nationals.  These were among the 3,071 cargo truck drivers whose samples were tested at the Uganda Virus Research Institute (UVRI).

UVRI tested a total of 3,507 samples on Wednesday. All the 438 samples from the community tested negative for covid-19.

Ministry of Health urges Ugandans to stay away from the truck drivers to stop the spread of the covid-19.

As the country’s confirmed cases rises to 100, Ministry of Health is conducting a community survey to discover the level of community transmissions in Uganda.

World Health Organization(WHO) receives an average of 80,000 positive cases everyday, according to the Organisation’s Director General Mr Tedros Adhanom who spoke to journalists on Tuesday.

Although the positive cases are decreasing in Western Europe, the Organisation noted that more cases are being reported every single day from Eastern Europe, South-East Asia, America and Africa. The number of cases in the whole world has exceeded 3.5 million, with over 245,000 fatalities.
