Just like in Bobi Wine’s ‘Corona alert’ song, ‘the sad news is everybody is a potential victim but the good news is everybody is a potential solution,’ news reaching us indicates that Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda has gone into self-isolation after some of his contacts tested positive for COVID-19.
“Friends, I have gone into self-isolation after some of my contacts tested positive for COVID19. My own test result is negative, however, I have taken this decision as a health recommended measure,” said Rugunda in a tweet.
The Ministry of Health has today confirmed 35 new COVID-19 cases taking the total confirmed cases in Uganda to 557. 15 cases are among samples taken from Points of Entry while 20 cases are among samples of alerts and contacts.
