KAMPALA — The Ministry of Health says seven more Ugandans have tested positive for coronavirus after 2,532 samples were analyzed on Thursday June 11.
In an update on Friday Morning, Dr. Henry Mwebesa, the Director General Service at the Ministry of Health says three of the cases are truck drivers who were identified from 1310 samples at different entry points while four cases are contacts and alerts drawn from … samples.
Two of the cases, truck drivers, entered the country from Kenya via Malaba while one is from Mutukula point of entry.
Four of the confirmed cases are alerts and contacts identified from the districts of Tororo (2), Kyotera (1) and Gulu (1).
To date, Uganda has not registered a total of 161 coronavirus and no COVID-19 related death recorded.
President Museveni on Thursday strongly warned Ugandans to exercise caution against the deadly COVID-19.
“We are winning this war if only everybody listens,” he said during the national budget.
But recently, he added it was found that some of the cases were erroneously classified as positive “due to carelessness” of some technicians.
President didn’t not mention the exact number of erroneous cases but asked health minister Dr. Ruth Aceng to clarify whether the said cases are part of the 679 number or not.
