As Museveni prepares to address the nation regarding the possibility of reinforcing the total lockdown, insiders have said that the government has given Ugandans a grace period of 7 days to change their conduct.
It has also been revealed that Museveni has declined to impose a total lockdown citing a possible economic depression as the country strives to recover from the post-election period.
According to the same sources, Museveni has ordered that Boda Boda riders go back to carrying strictly goods, not passengers while taxi and bus drivers have been directed to observe SOPs and carry half the capacity of the passengers.
Schools have been ordered to preach the vaccination to staff and students. Even visits to boarding school premises have been suspended.
Meanwhile, t the mass vaccination at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds has been halted to ready grounds for President Museveni’s State of the Nation Address scheduled for tomorrow Friday afternoon.
In a tweet, Ministry of Health public relations officer Emmanuel Ainebyoona has said that the grounds which have served as a mass vaccination center this week will now have to be prepared to receive the President.
“COVID-19 Vaccination at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds halted as the Grounds are being prepared for the State of the Nation Address Address,” Ainebyoona said.
According to Ainebyoona, the health ministry will announce the next steps accordingly and when the exercise will resume.
The well-attended mass vaccination exercise at Kololo initially commenced on Monday this week and thousands have so far benefited from it.
