Thursday, March 26, 2020

It is now Public Knowledge that the global pandemic of Corona Virus/Covid-19 is already in Uganda, with nine cases so far registered.

In an effort to stem further spread of the virus which causes COVID-19; Government has instituted several measures including;

  • Closer of schools,
  • Restrictions on cross-border movements, and
  • Public health guidelines, among others.
  • Decongestion of markets
  • Regulating of transport and movement of persons.

I highly commend the hon. Minister of Health and her team for their effort in containing the outbreak of the corona virus in the country.

To the business community – Manufacturers and Traders – as well as the general public, let us play our role by heeding the advice given to us, and ensure that we comply with the directives and the measures that have been issued and instituted.
