At the beginning of this week, the Ministry of Health warned Ugandans especially health workers to be cautious in order to limit on their chances of contracting the deadly Covid-19 variant which has been noticed in the country.
So far, the total number of health workers that have been affected by the virus stands at 19 and the Ministry worried a possible rise in the number of health workers affected by the virus.
“New COVID-19 cases are increasing day by day, and health workers are severely affected. I strongly urge you to practice infection prevention and control,” Dr Henry Mwebesa, the Director General of Health Services, Ministry of Health.
