The ministry of Health announces two new confirmed cases of Covid19.
This brings Uganda’s total cases to 58.
The two are a Burundian refugee who came into the country from Tanzania a week ago and a Kenyan truck driver who entered through Malaba.
The International Health Regulations (IHR) requires that every case that is tested and confirmed for a particular disease should be registered as the host country’s case.
Therefore, Uganda will capture all COVID-19 foreigners including truck drivers as her confirmed cases.
