A somber memorial ceremony to pay tribute to all Ugandans that have lost their lives to the novel corona virus was held Saturday evening in Uganda’s former capital, Entebbe.

A total of 3,610 candles were lit and 3610 roses were laid in memory of the victims by family members, friends and well-wishers.

The ceremony is part of the COVID-19 MEMORIAL WEEK ENTEBBE organised by Covid-19 Survivors and Victims Association(CVSA) with support from the Germany Embassy in Uganda.

Several survivors from all over the country attended the event to remember and as well send out a message of hope to those affected by the pandemic.

Robert Ngudo who is the CVSA founder said the ceremony is one way for the country to heal from a two year lockdown that saw the world come to a stand still.

Ngudo also underscored the need for the general public to stay alert as a new wave of coronavirus infections is taking a toll on the nation.

Last week Monday, the Health Ministry announced 127 new cases of coronavirus infections putting the Country on alert and reinstating some standard operating procedures such as washing hands with soap or hand sanitizer and wearing of face masks in public places.
