Government has revealed it will announce a lockdown on Kampala Central Business District (CBD) after several people neglecting the SOPs that were issued by the Ministry of Health in a bid to control further spread of disease. The minister for Kampala Betty Amongi reveals that the cabinet has resolved to institute a COVID-19 lockdown after the city is increasingly becoming a hub for COVID-19 infections.

Kampala could be placed under lockdown anytime due to rising cases of the coronavirus in the Ugandan capital blamed on failure of residents to comply with health regulations.

” Kampala is the sitting room for Uganda, if we see that the sitting room is going to endanger the bedrooms, we shall ask that the sitting room be closed to safeguard the bedrooms. It is up to us to avoid the lockdown,” Amongi said in an ealier media presser last week before revealing of the second lock-down on Kampala today.

Amongi says that workplaces, arcades and public transport have been identified as the areas in which COVID-19 transmission is being accelerated.

Early last month, the Minister of Works and Transport Edward Wamala said the government may reimpose the ban on public transport amid reports of a section of motorists flouting COVID-19 regulations


Uganda has consistently reported low numbers of daily COVID-19 positive cases, however, in recent days; it has begun reporting increasing numbers of cases, particularly in Kampala, raising concern among authorities.
