After President Yoweri Museveni declared coronavirus as being “tamed”, Uganda began easing lockdown restrictions on Tuesday.
A 45-day lockdown was imposed in the central African nation to curb the spread of #COVID19 but according to Mr. Museveni, the country was now better equipped to trace and detect new infections faster hence the decision to partially lift the lockdown. Businesses will be allowed to open but schools and international borders remain closed. The next level of reopening is expected to be announced by authorities after 14-days.
However, scientists have expressed concern about the number of confirmed cases going out of hand. With a total of 97 #COVID19 cases, 55 recoveries, and zero deaths, is the decision to lift the lockdown justified?
