The Ministry Of Health has warned the public to prepare for the 3rd wave of Covid-19. We have just been grappling with the second wave that sent us into a 42-day lockdown.
The country has just reopened but even with this, the Ministry of Health advises people to be vigilant. According to their predictions, they expect the third wave to start around the end of August.
Apparently, the country was only opened to prepare for the third wave.
“The lockdown has been lifted so we can prepare for the 3rd wave. Please train more health workers, fix the oxygen crisis, import Vaccines, buy more beds. Ugandans;- don’t wait for Nabbanja, save some ka money because it is a fact that the 3rd wave is coming.”
Reading through that statement, one could say the government opened to later close. However, people didn’t really love this post because they are apparently tired of this open and close business.
Regardless of all this, the public just needs to stay vigilant. Already, reports coming from Kampala show that people are sluggish in adhering to SOPs.
If things stay this way, the third wave may even hit before its predicted time.
