‘’Uganda expects to obtain her first batch of Covid-19 vaccine by May or June 2021. Priority will be given to frontline health workers, the elderly and people with existing health conditions,’’ Nabakooba said.
She noted that the chances of survival for someone who contracts the disease right now are very slim. The main reason she gave for this is because of the fact that all the treatment centers are currently full to capacity.
Therefore, she cautioned Ugandans to be very careful between now and June due to the critical condition in the country.
On the plus side, Nabakooba revealed that there will not be any lockdown during the festive season. However, the existing curfew and other SOPs must be strickly observed. She, however, told Ugandans to stay away from any form of festive temptations that could expose them to contracting the virus.
She stressed the point of discotheques and music concerts still being under lockdown. On the case of those traveling to the villages, she reminded them to follow all the guidance. These range from properly wearing the masks to social distancing among others.
She called upon leaders in market areas to restore the hand-washing points as before in the wake of the virus.
