President Museveni will on Saturday address the country about the next course of action after the elapse of the 42 lockdown aimed at curbing the rising cases of the deadly virus.

“President Museveni will address the nation this Saturday, July, 31, 2021 at 8pm on Covid-19 and any other related issues. The address will be live on all television and radio stations,” Presidential Press Secretary, Linda Nabusayi said on Tuesday morning.

The National Planning Authority (NPA) recently said there will not be a third Coronavirus wave according to its weekly projections of the deadly virus.

The president is therefore expected to announce the easing of the lockdown and reopening of the economy which has been hit hard by the Covid-induced lockdown.

During the address, President Museveni is also expected to update the country of efforts to ensure at least 80% of the targeted population is vaccinated in order to be safe.
