  1. The more lockdown is delayed, the greater the risk of spreading and ultimately the longer we shall be banned from going to other countries when they open up. Better government takes the bold and painful step of national lockdown for a week, break for three days then lock down for a week. After that government can reliably comment on covid19 status in Uganda.
