It is four days since the president's directive on the closer of all Universities, Schools and Tertiary institutions to reduce the fast spread of Corona virus. Uganda has today fallen a victim and is also counted among those countries affected with Corona virus. This was confirmed today by the Minister of Health (Jane Ruth Aceng).

The affected is a male Ugandan citizen 36 years of age who had traveled to Dubai for shopping on the 17th of March 2020. He traveled when he was well and on coming back, he had some symptoms of the virus ie: high fever and loss of appetite. The patient had no flue and cough but on suspecting him, a blood sample was picked from him and taken to the virus research institute where the sample tested positive with Corona virus.

This caused the call for another president's national press address which is to take place today the 22nd of March 2020 at 4pm. Stay posted for any other updates.

Uganda is advised to continue taking the following precautions to avoid the quick spread of the virus.
