Uganda has surpassed the 200 mark of registered Covid19 death after four months since it registered the first death. On 23rd July 2020, It was a sombre evening at the Ministry of Health boardroom as Director General Services Henry Mwebesa announced the first death due to Covid-19, like five months when the first case of covid-19 was announced by Dr Jane Ruth Aceng, the country is in shock.

As we passed the mark of 200 death there was no press conference to remind the country but we all know Uganda has reached stage 4 of the viral disease. Community infections that are almost impossible to trace which puts the country at risk.

Hon Jane Ruth Aceng, Minister of Health said then that most people had been holding that sense of false security that coronavirus is not there because it has killed no Ugandan.

Tension was high in Mbale city on Wednesday 22nd July, eastern Uganda following the death of a 34-year-old female patient with COVID-19 like symptoms. The patient was picked up from Mabyale sub-county in Namisindwa district and admitted at Joyce Hospice health center.

“COVID is real, dangerous and can kill. Please embrace preventive measures; wash your hands regularly with soap and water, wear a face mask and practice social distancing. Stay safe”, said Hon Jane Ruth Aceng

Meanwhile, Kabale Regional Referral Hospital continues to register many numbers of Covid19 positive cases as community infections increase. Kabale district and its surrounding have cold weather which can cause wide spread.

Results of COVID-19 tests done on 27 November 2020 confirm 356 new cases. The cumulative confirmed cases is now 19,944.

4 COVID-19 deaths recorded. The total COVID-19 deaths are now 201.

“The world has seen a tremendous increase in cases of #COVID19. Health workers who are meant to help us are equally infected. In the last 4 weeks, #Uganda is not doing so well. We are the 5th contributor to the infections increase in Africa”, said Yonas Tegegn WOLDERMARIAM, World Health Organisation Representative in Uganda

The breakdown of the new cases are: 356 contacts and alerts: Kampala (127), Wakiso (43), Kasese (24), Butebo (22), Jinja (14), Mukono (11), Hoima (8), Kabale (12), Busia (7), Pallisa (7), Budaka (7), Tororo (6), Iganga (9), Serere (5), Luwero (7), Mubende (4), Kibuku (4)139Ministry of Health- Uganda@MinofHealthUG·Kamwenge (6), Zombo (3), Kamuli (3), Buvuma (2), Butaleja (2), Soroti (2), Buikwe (2), Bundibugyo (1), Buvuma (1), Ibanda (1), Kagadi (1), Kaliro (1), Kiboga (1), Kisoro (1), Isingiro (1), Kyenjojo (8), Kanungu (1), Kabarole (1), Kaberamaido (1)
