This implies that most of the new cases are all imported cases from the neighboring and therefore this calls for immediate attention.
However, we thank the Health Minister Dr. Jane Ruth Aceng for working hard to ensure all Ugandans are safe. In addition, we as Cyclone Times Uganda continue to extend our thanks to all Ugandans for keeping a social distance.
Meanwhile, we keep urging the entire population to stay vigilant about the deadly coronavirus. Stay home and always ensure you wash your hands regularly with soap or hand sanitizers after touching any surfaces around you… In conclusion, make sure you also avoid touching the soft parts of your body, for example, the eyes, nose, and mouth.
