President Museveni Asks Public To Minimize Use of Public Transport
President Museveni has advised the public to minimize the use of public transport to curb the spread of COVID 19.
On Saturday, the Ministry of Health confirmed the first case of COVID 19. The confirmed case is that of a 36-year-old Ugandan who travelled to Dubai on March 17, 2020, for business and returned yesterday, March 21, 2020.
While addressing the nation on Sunday, President Museveni urged people who do not own vehicles or motorcycles to desist from travelling.
President Museveni says that while he is still trying to find a way to address the risk that public transport possesses, the owners of public transport vehicles need to provide measures that ensure safe travel for all passengers.
