The spread of the Covid-19 virus in Uganda has put the country under great fear. Citizens are now even afraid of associating with each other for fear of contracting the deadly virus. According to NTV Uganda, an unidentified woman collapsed along the road. What is shocking is that nobody wanted to move closer.
NTV Uganda Tweeted, "An unidentified woman collapsed on a road in Mafubira Zone, Jinja city. Passersby offered her food because they believed that she was starving. However, due to the COVID-19 situation, they were afraid to pick her up. The residents alerted the Police".
From what the Twitter users have said, it is clear some sympathized with the poor woman as others blamed hunger as the cause of her collapse.
@Nsereko Gerald said, "Imagine this pain in our country, can't something better be done and people go back to work for their families".
@Fonomeno said, "That's why I gave up on Uganda. No one cares. It starts from the top, everyone for themselves".
@Msquared said, "People are dying of hunger more than Covid".
Do you think hunger is killing more people than Covid?
