The President who said he had come to issue a warning to all those who abuse Standard Operating Procedures said that he will return (possibly this week) to outline the new measures to contain the second COVID-19 wave.
“Today, I am here to alert you about the COVID-19 situation in the country. We are going to have a task force meeting on Wednesday to fully discuss how we can handle the situation,” he said, appealing to the population to stay safe.
Museveni also asked the citizens to avoid traveling to Kampala and Wakiso, where the virus is more concentrated.
“If you are out of Kampala and Wakiso, try to stay where you are. Avoid the capital.”
Last week, the country recorded 700 new infections.
