Uganda Registers Highest Number Of Covid-19 Cases A Single Day

Each day that goes by, new cases of Covid-19 rises in Uganda, which has put more fear among Ugandans who are still confined in their homes.

The President of Uganda His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on the 4th of May 2020 partly eased the lockdown and extended two more weeks as they monitor the situation.

According to the increasing number of covid-19 cases among the cargo truck drivers in the country, it has caused more fear among Ugandans thinking that the situation might force the government to extend the lockdown.

On Friday 15th May 2020, 43 new COVID-19 cases were confirmed in Uganda out of 1,838 samples of truck drivers. This brings the total number of positive cases in Uganda to 203. However, the 720 community samples all tasted negative.

On the safe side, the country has not yet registered any fatality. Recoveries are also rising despite the fact that new cases are rising at a very faster rate.

So all cases are from truck drivers mainly ! There should be a permanent solution because we shall still get new truck drivers coming in!” One Ugandan called Ssaka Mark said.

During the recent nation address, president Museveni said stopping truck drivers from entering the country is suicidal, because they bring essential goods into the country.
