Kampala: Uganda’s Ministry of Health has reported a surge of COVID-19 in the months of April, May 2021 after the county reported the second wave of the virus with Kampala recording the highest numbers which have put many people at risk.

The country’s new test positivity rate also shows a steady positive increase compared to the months of February and March.

Country Deaths have reached 334, while recoveries have climbed to 15,147, leaving the country with total cases at 40,734 as of June 5.

The surging COVID-19 case has prompted president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to come out again to give an update on the deadly disease in the country.

According to Judith Nabakooba, Museveni will address the country today Sunday, June 6, 2021, at 8 O’clock on all Radios and Televisions.

“Be sure not to miss H.E President Kaguta Museveni’s address tonight about COVID-19 situation in the country and way forwards,” Nabakooba posted.

With the increase in cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, the Ministry of Health-MOH, in the meeting they had with the president on Wednesday, issued some recommendations that will help to slow down the rise of cases.

MOH requested the president to lockdown Kampala and Wakiso where the country is almost getting out of control, as far as the control of the virus is concerned.

Health experts say that the key change is limiting the number of people at gatherings.

Here are the recommendations issued by the temporary COVID-19 task force and MOH to the president to consider lockdown to fight the second wave of the virus.

1. Curfew brought back to 7 O’clock

2. Security must force guidelines (SOPs) as issued the MOH.

3. Students already reported (opened classes) should keep at school.

4. Students at home should not report back to school

5. Stop public transport in Kampala and Wakiso.

NOTE; these are just recommendations but the president will reveal the was forward today in his speech.
