Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | President Yoweri Museveni has thanked Ugandan health workers for “a wonderful job, even though they were not prepared. The consequence is no one has died from coronavirus.”

He also thanked Ugandan scientists. “My position is the scientists should be paid better than the non scientists. You can see how much trouble they have saved us from this COVID-19 danger,” he said.

President Museveni said this today in his first address since he extended Uganda’s COVID-19 lock-down for 21 days to May 5.

Museveni is expected to clarify on several measures he took in place, especially on food distribution and car stickers that have bee abused. He is also expected to put in new measures to ensure faster tests are done for truck drivers entering from the neigbouring countries.

Security on Saturday set up roadblocks across the city and Masaka road, and nabbed hundreds of vehicles either with false stickers or not following the standard operating procedures put in place.

Uganda heeded a call by the World Health Organisation (WHO) not to lift restrictions quickly. The World Health Organisation  warned countries against lifting lockdown restrictions quickly even in cases where the Coronavirus pandemic may have reached a plateau.

Uganda has so far 55 confirmed cases and has had up to 28 recover from the virus.
