Cecilia Ogwal has appealed to Government to conduct mass testing following a steady increase in the number of #covid19 positive cases and deaths in the Country.
While presenting on the floor of parliament today, the legislator noted it is high-time the Government carried out mass testing since many people may not be aware of their status.
“There is a sharp rise of infections and every day the figures being released by the Ministry of Health is increasing. Some health workers have tested positive to COVID-19 and some have unfortunately died. The masks which were ordered for the general population haven’t arrived in some areas including Dokolo.” She said.
“Government should come up with a cheap option of mass testing of Covid-19 conducted at nearest health facilities.” She added
Uganda today registered 185 new #covid19 cases, and one death. This makes the cumulative cases 7,064 and 70 deaths.
