KAMPALA- President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has announced that he was compelled to take a test for Coronavirus after losing his voice.
The President made the revelation on Tuesday, 28th July 2020 as he was being nominated for President at the NRM Electoral Commission offices in Kampala at the event; he had a severely hoarse voice.
According to the President, on Sunday morning doctors took samples from him and returned them in the evening confirming that he was free from Coronavirus.
He said his troubles started over the weekend when he had very long meetings and he had to talk for hours in the mask. In the end, he says he suffered a sore throat and his voice suddenly shrunk.
“It appears that when you talk for long in the mask, it affects your voice,” he said. “When I lost my voice, my thought was this is Corona. My immediate reaction was to call my young doctors.”
Thankfully, on Sunday evening he says the samples came back negative.
“Apparently there is another bacterium which can cause a hoarse voice, but it was also not there. Yesterday I went to the cabinet briefly and I came back and rested the voice.”
The President says he has since been advised to take lemon, honey and ginger, which he is currently taking in large amounts.
