The Ministry of Health has confirmed five new cases of COVID-19 in the country.

Dr. Joyce Moriku said the five new cases bring the total number of confirmed patients to 14.

The five people who confirmed positive, include the two of the six chinese that were got in Zombo.

57 year old male Adjumani – has not travelled before – salt trader.

2 Chinese arrested in Zombo after escaping from Quarantine.

“Dear Ugandans, this is a very critical moment for everyone as the number of positive cases keeps scaling up. Five more people have been confirmed positive, including two of the six Chinese that were got in Zombo. They cannot be presented in court for fear of further spread,” she tweeted on
So far, we have 12 Ugandans and two Chinese who have tested positive for the virus.

"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"
