Two male COVID19 patients have escaped from Gulu regional referral hospital, according to the hospital authorities who preferred anonymity the patients and escaped about two weeks ago and are in Elegu where they are believed to be mixing with the community.
The COVID-19 taskforce of Gulu district is on a hunt of two COVID19 patients who escaped from Gulu regional referral hospital where they have been receiving treatment. The two brothers cut the perimeter fence of the isolation center and took off
In a phone interview, the COVID19 regional surveillance officer Bishop Loum confirmed the escape.
However, we were able to conduct a phone interview with one of the patients who admitted that he is in Elegu and he’s a brother who is very sick is now in Arua. The patient said they escaped because the hospital lacked medicine, and they had stayed in isolation for almost six weeks, Rasaki who said he had been worried about his family also blamed the medical workers for being tribalistic.

This unfortunate escape of the two patients from Gulu regional referral hospital comes less than 24 hours after Uganda announced the first death of a COVID19 patient.
And regrettably, a hole that appeared on the hospital wire perimeter fence about two weeks ago has not yet been sealed.
The perimeter fence is located right next to the busy Gulu avenue street which puts road users, communities living around at the risk of exposure to the COVID19 patients who access this area.
