KAMPALA – President Yowerin Museveni has on Monday May 18 said that “the strategy of lockdown has saved the country from getting big numbers of Coronavirus infections and has also helped to have a rough idea as to where the enemy is coming from and also to prepare better”.
After dealing with the borders and suspending much of the activity in the country, the President says the enemy (the coronavirus) was dealt a huge blow.
The president has announced new measure to ease the lockdown but said that are tied up by absence of masks.
“Opening up is tied to the masks. And the masks will be ready in two weeks, starting May 19,” says President Museveni.
“We believe that with the [proper] mask, you do not infect others and you also do not get infected, on top of all the other measures.”
Once again, the President sought to give justification for why his government has allowed the cargo transporters to continue coming in despite being the source of the persistent numbers of the coronavirus cases in Uganda.
