Uganda registers 116 Covid-19 Cases as new wave rages on

According to figures availed by the Ministry of Health, 116 people tested positive for the novel corona virus out of 2,585 tests from 11th June 2018.

Kampala District is the area with the highest infection rate with 69 cases followed by Mbarara District and Lira District.

The recent skyrocketing rate of new COVID-19 infections has forced the Health Ministry to put the country on alert, imploring Ugandans to be vigilant.

Last week on Monday, the Director of Curative Services at the ministry, Charles Olaro called on Ugandans to observe the standard operating procedures to arrest the possibility of a new wave.

The available measures include wearing face masks, physical distancing, hand washing with soap or use of alcohol based sanitizers.

The emerging new crop of COVID-19 infections is reminiscent of the June 2021 spike in cases when Uganda and the world over were battling the Delta Variant.

Since 2020, Uganda has recorded one 160,000 positive cases of Corona virus and over 3600 people have succumbed to the disease.
