Last month, Fort Portal City and Kabarole District received only 1,544 doses which were disbursed to five vaccination centres which include Fort Portal regional referral hospital, Bukuuku health centre IV, Mucwa health centre III, Kijura health Centre III, and Rutete Health Centre III.
According to the councillors when they were tested at Budaka Health Center IV to enable them to attend the council meeting, they tested positive to covid-19. However, the councillors went to Nansanga Health Center III for a confirmatory test which turned negative. The results at Mbale Regional Hospital were also negative.
Dr Joyce Moriko Kaducu, the State Minister for Primary Education says parents should learn from the disruptions caused by Covid-19 and invest in standardizing local schools within their localities from where their children can study as opposed to long-distant schools.
