Uganda on Monday fully opened its economy for business after nearly two years of pandemic-related lockdown.
In an interview over the weekend, President Yoweri Museveni stated that entertainment, bars, discos, cinemas and other sectors that have not been operating due to COVID-19 pandemic will be fully reopened, noting that the government has administered 12.43 million vaccine doses so far to its adult population.
The news was welcomed throughout the country, and happy residents headed in droves to bars, cinemas and nightclubs after midnight.
Schools across the country reopened about two weeks ago and during that period, 600,000 teenage girls got pregnant in the country, according to the UN report, risking their return to school.
So far, Uganda has reported 160,352 cases and 3,474 deaths.
