COVID-19; Uganda’s Confirmed Cases up to 52
The Ministry of Health registered four new cases of COVID-19 bringing the number of confirmed cases to 52 by Sunday evening.
The four cases were part of 300 samples tested on the same day.
Some of the samples were from quarantine centres taken before people under institutional quarantine are released.
According to the health ministry, the testing of suspected cases has helped stop the spread of the disease.
So far, over 2,900 samples have been tested at the Uganda Virus Research Institute.
The news of the four patients comes at a time when the country is entering its second week of a 14-day total lockdown aimed at forestalling the spread of the disease as the ministry tries to locate over 2000 travellers.
