Six of the new cases are truck drivers, four of whom arrived via the Mutukula border and two from Busia.
The ministry says the other nine cases are from alerts and contacts to previously confirmed cases in Amuru, Kyotera, Buikwe, Nakaseke, Lira and Kampala districts.
Additionally, 33 foreign truck drivers who also tested positive were denied entry into Uganda.
