Uganda to maintain lockdown in districts with Covid-19 cases
Kampala, Jul 3 (Prensa Latina) Uganda's districts with Covid-19 cases will remain on lockdown until there are zero patients registered in the area, according to health authorities.
The epidemiology department of the Ministry of Health noted in a press release that easing the lockdown will depend on the epidemiological situation and added that the districts are reviewed weekly.
Once there are no more cases in one area, the confinement is lifted. This is gradually slowing down without needing national blockades, the press release indicates.
Although President Yoweri Museveni ordered the reopening of some border districts, restrictions remained in others with high-risk characteristics and reported patients.
The Director General of Health Services of the Ministry, Henry Mwebesa, clarified that the only district out of the 111 ones not having restrictions is Gulu (north), which contacts of Covid-19 cases have recently passed medical watch.
According to the most recent press briefing, Uganda accumulates 893 Covid-19 cases, of which 126 were repatriated to their home nations, and has not regretted any deaths.
