The matter was raised by Jalia Bintu (Masindi Woman) who demanded that all MPs present for plenary be tested for COVID19 to re-assure the nation. She added that the above mentioned three MPs were in Parliament on Monday that Kigozi is alleged to have had a high temperature.

The Ministry of Health last night confirmed eight more cases of coronavirus disease-COVID-19, bringing the total number of patients in the country to nine.

But a number of people who jetted into the country aboard the Ethiopian Airlines flight in which the first case travelled from Dubai were reportedly not quarantined which presents a danger to communities where they went upon arrival.

Minister of Health Ruth Aceng has called on anyone who came into Uganda from Dubai in the past two weeks to get in touch with her officers so they can track and test them.

“The UAE was not among the high risk countries. From what we are seeing we are not sure what was reported was the truth,” said Aceng at a press conference Monday night in Kampala.
