The Ministry of Health on Saturday morning announced that 13 new COVID-19 cases was recorded for Friday.
“Results of samples tested on 8, May 2020 confirmed 13 new COVID-19 cases from 2,421 samples of truck drivers,” the Ministry says.
“Out of the 13 new cases, seven (7) are Kenyans, four (4) are Ugandans while two (2) are Tanzanians. Tracking them has commenced and the public will be infirmed accordingly,” Ministry added.
All 740 community samples tested negative for COVID-19 with a total of 3,161 samples tested on Friday.
Uganda’s total confirmed cases are 114, with 55 recoveries and zero (0) death.
Ministry of Health has launched a new campaign dubbed #Tonsemberera, loosely translated as Keep Your Distance. The campaign aims to sensitize, remind and urge Ugandans to keep social distance as one of the ways of preventing the spread of the virus and infections.
The campaign that will last for more than 30 days will also ensure Uganda is free from Coronavirus pandemic, and people are able to live normally after.
