Uganda’s President Museveni to Test Again for Covid after Aides Test Positive

President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda will be tested again for the coronavirus disease after some of his personal aides tested positive for the virus.

Joseph Okiria, Museveni’s consultant physician, tweeted on Friday that three of the president’s aides had tested positive upon their return from trips to the United Arab Emirates and Ethiopia.

“Following President Museveni’s recent return from Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Addis Ababa, three presidential aides have tested positive for COVID-19.

“Despite best efforts and measures including daily PCR testing and full vaccination,” Okiria said.

These employees are isolated and receiving care, he said.

According to Okiria, the President and other team members tested negative and will be retested.

“This highlights the continued difficulty of safe travel during the pandemic and the importance of testing all inbound and outbound travellers.”

The number of daily infections in the East African nation dropped to less than 100, according to its health ministry.

Ugandan authorities recently resolved that COVID-19 will be tested on incoming and outgoing travellers.

As of Friday, 124,437 total infections had been registered with 3,172 deaths and 96,237 recoveries since the outbreak began in March 2020.
