After confirming one case last week, more cases are rising in Rwanda. Four more people have tested positive, and among these people, one of them is a Ugandan. This 22-year-old man arrived in Rwanda on March 15 from London.
After these four cases, the number of people who are infected with Covid-19 is totaling to five. The first case to be confirmed was on Saturday 14 march 2020 when an Indian citizen from Mumbai tested positive.
According to the Sunday statement issued by Rwanda’s ministry of health, all patients are currently under treatment, great care and seriously isolated from other patients.
Other people who tested positive include two Rwandan brothers (aged 34 and 36) who flock in the country on March 8 from Fiji and the 30-year-old Rwandan man (this man is a resident of Kigali and has no recent travel history).
After this outbreak, Rwanda Air has decided to cancel all flights to China, India and Israel. To add on that, the government cancelled all prayer meetings, night clubs, sporting events, ceremonies and all schools are closed to limit the widespread throughout the country.
