KAMPALA- President Museveni Yoweri has on Sunday September 20th 2020 suspended the quarantine of all Ugandans returning from abroad.
Giving a status update on the Covid-19 pandemic to the nation the President said that all returnees will be allowed to get to the homes and do self isolation.
Ho said that they will only be asked to leave their contacts for the ministry of health to follow up and do medical checkups.
This has eased on the life of all those returning from abroad as they have always been put under quarantine for 14 days and a pay for their hotel accommodation.
He blamed the increase in the number of cases to errant Ugandans who have not been keen to the Ministry of Health’s and WHO Standard Operating Procedures.
The President’s update comes on day when Uganda has recorded the highest number of Covid-19 cases of 263 taking the total number to 6000 cases.
Uganda has received 173 returnees from neighboring Rwanda in the last two days and all have been left to go their respective homes except for one who was whisked away upon her arrival.
Most districts with quarantines have been faced with constraints of funding and most districts had resorted to home quarantines to the victims thus closing off quarantines.
