The coronavirus has continued to wreak havoc in the world and while other countries are seemingly out of the woods, some seem to be getting even worse. The Uganda country in specific has been experiencing an increase in cases of the virus, forcing the Yoweri-led administration to instill stringent measures to cub further spread of the virus.
Over a couple of weeks ago, the country hit its highest record, where over 40 people were reported to have succumbed to the virus with over 100 others reported to have contacted the virus within 24 hours. As the nation strives to ensure that they don't get to the worst scenario, bad news has reportedly been delivered to Ugandans.
According to NTV Uganda, the country in recent days has been recording fewer cases of the virus due to a lack of testing kits. District Health Officer Dr. Lawrence confirmed that it is not that the Covid-19 cases have been going down, he said that the cases have been going down because of a lack of testing kits in the country.
According to the health official, they believe that there are a lot of people out there with the virus but they can not confirm who is positive and who is not.
Elsewhere, Ugandan President Yowerri Museven trended the better part of yesterday after it was alleged that the head of state was flown to Kenya for specialized treatment after he contacted the novel coronavirus disease. Until the publication of this article, no official communication has been made following that allegations.
