Meanwhile, two staff at the National Resistance Movement (NRM) secretariat have tested positive for Covid-19.
This was revealed by the party’s secretary general, Ms Kasule Lumumba, in a tweet and a facebook post.
Ms Lumumba’s communication came hours after the Ministry of Health had confirmed five new cases of Covid-19 from tests carried out yesterday.
The two cases also come a day after President Museveni’s visit to the secretariat on Tuesday where he was nominated as the party’s the national chairman and presidential flag bearer for the forthcoming 2021 elections.
While there, Mr. Museveni revealed that he called in Ministry of Health experts on Sunday to test for Covid-19 after developing a sore throat and hoarse voice. He, however, said that his samples tested negative thus being able to appear in public again. Ends.
