Museveni Advised By Health Experts To Delay Re-opening

As COVID 19 cases continue to soar higher since the recent past, officials from the Ministry of Health have advised President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to stall the reopening of schools and the economy as more scientific studies are done to see how safe the reopening can be done.

Since mid December, COVID 19 cases have been on the rise on Uganda.

At least 1000 new cases have been recorded daily a thing that has worried the health officials predicting that the third wave is already looming around the corner which would strain the health facilities with huge numbers of patients.

The outbreak of Omicron COVID Variant has also worsened the situation.

According to insiders, the MoH officials were advising the president to cancel flights to and fro the high risk countries.

10th January 2022 had been the date set by the Ministry of Education for the reopening of schools, however it is not yet clear if this still stands.

President Museveni in his last presidential address on COVID 19 had vowed to fully open up the country regardless of whether people were vaccinated or not.

However, the current situation is likely to be the determinant as to whether he will stick to his words or decide to follow the advice of the health experts.

Gen Museveni will be addressing the nation on the 31st of December with many expecting him to reveal on what next to be done on the reopening plans.
