Uganda now has 85 confirmed cases of the COVID-19 after two new positive cases were registered by the Ministry of health last night.
The two cases are a 35-year old Kenyan male driver who entered the country through the Busia border and the second is a Ugandan male from Masindi who was confirmed through the ongoing health ministry community survey.
According to the health ministry, the results of the Kenyan truck driver came back after the affected driver had traveled back to Kenya.
This new case brings the number of positive tests among truck drivers to 27.
The health ministry is also investigating how the male Corona virus client from Masindi might have gotten infected with the disease to ascertain whether they were contacts of a known positive case or if they got the disease through community transmissions.
Ugandan Scientists and policy makers are in the process of trying to decide whether the country’s lockdown should be lifted or not. To date, Uganda has recorded seven known community transmissions. END
