Uganda discharges last Covid-19 patients

The Ugandan Ministry of Health on Tuesday confirmed that there is no Covid-19 patient admitted to any hospital in the country.

Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Ainebyoona said Ugandans need to continue practicing safety measures as the risk of contracting the virus is still high.

 

“[There are] no admissions at the moment.

But] we still have some people testing positive despite a very negligible positivity rate. We need to remain vigilant owing to the fact that some countries still have lockdowns due to an upsurge of Covid-19 cases,” he said.

The latest statistics from the Ministry indicate that between April 12 and April 14, a total of 27 cases were reported and the average test positivity rate was at 0.3 percent, which means the pandemic is under control.

Any positivity rate under 5% signifies control of the pandemic, according to scientists.
