As the number of positive COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the country with many positives being stuck in their homes, the health ministry is finalizing the guidelines that people in homes must follow in handling Covid patients.
The need for guidelines comes as over 400 people that have tested positive are in their homes in Greater Kampala alone and are yet to be picked up health ministry emergency teams to take them to hospital. According to the health ministry, the guidelines will be a detailed document that will help people in different households to know what they can do to keep themselves safe and their households.
Dr Charles Olaro, the director of clinical services at the health ministry says the guidelines are very important now as the number of reported cases increase. END
