Following the widespread of Covid-19 pandemic, the president of Uganda “Yoweri Kaguta Museveni” has decided to disallow all flights to and out of Ebb airport to different parts of the World.
This move is meant to limit the mass spread of this dangerous virus to the country. Out of the thousand countries in the World, Uganda is among those with few cases.
Since last year when this outbreak was declared in China’s Wuhan, Uganda has just confirmed one case so far. A male Ugandan tested positive for Corona-virus on Saturday, and this was confirmed by the minister of health “Ruth Achieng”.
This businessman arrived at Entebbe Airport from Dubai by Ethiopian Airlines. He traveled to Dubai on 17/03/2020 to get some goods for his business in Uganda. It is believed that this man got the Virus from Dubai or got infected along the way.
The latest updates show that this patient is under treatment and massive care in Entebbe. All Ugandans are cautioned to be alert about this Virus. It has spread to all continents of the World, but more worse in Europe with thousands of confirmed cases.
