Namboole COVID-19 treatment center has recorded a major drop in cases, with only 40 patients currently in admission.

Just a few weeks ago, there were fears that the health system would collapse with single day deaths increasing to 50 with the highest going to 58 people.

At Namboole, Dr Ivan Kisuule who heads the facility says they have been recording over a hundred cases each day, but the number has reduced giving hope to the community. Dr. Kisule Speaking;….

While the facility was initially set up to be an auxiliary unit admitting those with a mild or moderate disease but have other pre-existing conditions like diabetes, asthma and cancer among others for close monitoring, it was turned into a treatment facility due to the strain that came with the increase in cases.

Dr Monica Musenero, an epidemiologist and Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation says the epi curve has flattened.

She attributes it to restrictions in travel and socializing with the current partial lockdown. End.
