Professor Patrick Ogwang has donated 500 doses of Covidex to Ugandan 11th Parliament in the Country’s move to end COVID-19 outbreak.

According to Anita Among the 11th Deputy Speaker, Prof Ogwang donated the doses in appreciation of government’s support in manufacturing this vaccine. 

“Prof Patrick Ogwang, the developer of COVIDEX has donated 500 doses of the drug to Parliament in appreciation of the government’s support” says Anita Among the Deputy speaker of Parliament.

The development follows Government’s to gift Ogwang, five acres of land and ten years of tax holiday to support him in expanding the COVIDEX factory.

While handing over the investment license to Prof Ogwang on Wednesday, Ms Evelyn Anite, the state minister for investment said the government will look into his investment plan and provide any additional support he may need to make Covidex “go international.”

“We as government will give Prof Ogwang full support to ensure that he develops other products. We are going to support all our scientists because this is the only way to develop a pathogenic economy,” said Anite.

Prof Ogwang applauded the government for the offer and revealed that works at Soroti industrial park to expand the factory will begin in three months. The medicine is currently being manufactured from a small factory in Entebbe.
