Uganda’s Coronavirus Recoveries Rises To 90 As Masaka Hospital Discharges Seven

On Saturday evening, Doctors from Masaka Regional Referral Hospital with a lot of joy discharged 7 people who have recovered from coronavirus.

The Hospital which admitted it’s first coronavirus patient on 21st April 2020, has so far discharged a total number of thirteen recoveries and all of them are truck drivers; 6 Ugandans who came through Mutukula border entry point and one Burundian citizen.

This brings Uganda’s total number of recoveries to ninety, according to Health Ministry spokesperson, Mr Ainebyona Emmanuel.

The in-charge of Masaka coronavirus treatment centre, Dr Jjuko Mark explained that after discharging the new 7 recoveries, the hospital got enough space to accommodate new positive cases.

We had reached a stage of transferring new cases to other hospitals but the departure of these seven people is going to enable us admit more. We are also extending our centre to a near-50 bed capacity after getting some tents from the line ministry,” Dr Jjuko said.

This happened a few hours after the Health Ministry announced 36 new coronavirus cases on Saturday, 9 of which are front-line workers.

The total number of confirmed cases in Uganda hit 593.
