The President of the Republic of Uganda, His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has warned villagers from upcountry districts to stop visiting the capital city, Kampala and Wakiso district.
He made this statement last night while addressing the nation about the current status of COVID -19 in the country.
Museveni said the virus is mostly in Kampala and Wakiso because the people living in those areas have failed to adhere to the COVID-19 SOPs.
” Ugandans who are in the villages, don’t come to Kampala and Wakiso if you are not doing serious work like trading. Kampala and Wakiso are full of Corona. Don’t come to visit your children. Stay in your villages,” he said.
“If you don’t control the numbers, health facilities cannot cope. Last year and early this year, the medical facilities could take care of them and they recover. That is why the recovery rate was high,” he further added.
The President and National task force will be meeting on Wednesday to come up with new rules aimed at helping the citizens to survive catching the virus more.
Yesterday alone, Uganda registered 700 new COVI-19 cases.
