Parliament has confirmed that at least 39 MPs who travelled to Arusha for the EA parliamentary games tested positive for Omicron, a virulent Covid-19 variant.
Chris Obore, the director of communication at Parliament confirmed that the affected MPs have been isolated.
Mr. Obore said they were aware that since the MPs were travelling to Tanzania, Uganda would get some positive cases, forcing them to prepare in time.
Tanzania has a relaxed policy when it comes to measures to combat Covid-19.
He said there is no cause for alarm or panic as the situation is under control. END
