The Minister of ICT and National Guidance Judith Nabakooba, has warned Ugandans to either adhere to the standard operating procedures set to control the spread of COVID-19 or risk going back into lock-down again.
This warning comes after President Museveni announced even more measures to allow Ugandans to get back to work while trying to navigate ways of living with the Coronavirus and finding ways of curtailing its spread.
The Ministry Of Health is growing wary of the rise in community cases with more people going back to work while ignoring the SOPs like social distancing, regular sanitization, and the wearing of masks.
“Let people wear masks full time most especially in congested places like markets and where possible, observe social distancing,” said Minister Judith Nabakooba.
Protect your lives, follow the SOPs and don’t take us back into lock-down, but if you want it (lock-down) you will get it.
Late last week, Uganda government confirmed the nation wide distribution of masks was underway.
In the last 10 days alone, Uganda has registered 4 deaths of COVID19 while the cumulative registered cases tested positive for the coronavirus are 1,182 with total recoveries now at 1,045.
