Cases of the deadly virus are increasing on a daily basis something that brings doubt to the government whether people are still following the guidelines or they are tired.
Apparently, Uganda has confirmed 119 recoveries and no death cases according to the Ministry of Health. The President while addressing the Nation yesterday in the State house, he mentioned that the distribution of masks will begin today in different district head quarters.
“As we ease the “lockdown” measures, you have been provided with careful and deliberate guidance by the government. However, it is disheartening to see some people blatantly flout these guidelines. The truck drivers were a big contributor to our cases but the interventions we took are helping reduce these specific cases. The distribution of government masks will start tomorrow and I have asked the authorities to prepare hospital facilities to handle upto 40,000 cases if we get there.” The President said during his speech.
