In a statement issued this morning, the Senior Health Ministry Publicist, Emmanuel Ainebyoona, says no single COVID-19 case has been registered in the country. He also clarifies that the Health Ministry surveillance teams received an alert from Royal Complex on Friday of a lady suspected to have COVID-19 infection.
Dr. Baker Nkulumbi, one of the Dental Practitioners, says what they are seeing in clinics is a near oral crisis as people keep damaged teeth and only seek care when they start experiencing pain. He says this is partly happening because people are largely unaware of available prevention options.
Dr. Henry Mwebesa, the Director-General of Health Services, says as the Ministry is struggling to keep Corona virus at bay, they are also battling misinformation spreading on social media and other platforms.
