Uganda’s COVID-19 cases reach 44

This was announced by President Yoweri Museveni on Tuesday night as he clarified on some of the measures he had announced earlier to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The President said he was happy most of the cases were coming from quarantine and not from the community.

He said the big number of the new cases were of children from Watoto Church Choir.

He emphasized the new measures of stemming the spread of the virus such as the 7pm-6:30am curfew and banning the use of private vehicles for movement.

Public transport had earlier been banned while lodges, salons and hardware shops will not be operating.

Shopping malls and arcades will also not be operating for 14 days. Cargo transporters will be cleared to move as well as service operators.
