The Ministry of Health- Uganda has clarified on social media reports claiming three people in Uganda have contracted the deadly coronavirus.
“Our attention has been drawn to false social media posts attributing statements to myself,” said Emmanuel Ainebyoona, spokesperson of Ministry of Health.
He said there is no case or suspect of coronavirus in Uganda.
The Chinese being referred to in the social media posts have no novel coronavirus symptoms.
However, they are under 14 days of isolation like anyone who has just returned from China.
“Our surveillance officers visited them on Wednesday and found when they are observing the guidelines given to them for isolation.”
He added: “Please, let’s remain calm and avoid spreading false rumours.”
