The ministry of Health also announced that all the confirmed cases are stable and receiving treatment in isolation from other patients.

"Coronavirus is spread through sneezing, coughing or contact with contaminated surfaces. To avoid the disease, wash your hands with soap regularly, don’t spit in public, avoid crowds and stay home if you have flu. Protect yourself and your loved ones. Let’s fight Corona together. This message is from the Ministry of Health"

They said that they were tracing contacts for further containment of the virus.

Rwanda on Saturday had announced that all religious activities were to be carried out from home, placing a temporary ban on places of worship, gatherings and advised employers to guide on their employees on how they can work at home where possible.

Rwanda became the second East African country to confirm a case after Kenya.

Uganda remains with no confirmed case of the coronavirus as per the Ministry of Health at the time of writing this report.

President Yoweri Museveni last week asked Ugandans to stop shaking hands as a  precaution to avoid contracting the deadly Coronavirus that is spreading to various countries across the world.

 “Now as the Ministry of health guides us, let us take a personal decision not to shake hands unnecessarily or expose ourselves to conditions that will facilitate the spread of Coronavirus,” Mr Museveni said in a statement.
