The Ugandan Prime Minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda has Friday morning been taken into self-isolation after he was reportedly exposed to contacts that tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Although the Prime Minister himself tested negative, he took the decision to go into self-isolation after some of his contacts tested positive for COVID-19.
It should be noted that the Prime Minister was appointed by President Yoweri Museveni in March this year to head the COVID-19 Response Task Force, which is mandated with the task of combating the pandemic at all Front Lines.
The shocking revelation was made by Premier Rugunda himself who announced on tweeter thus; “Friends, I have gone into self isolation after some of my contacts tested positive for #COVID19. My own test result is negative, however, I have taken this decision as a health recommended measure. #StaySafeUG”
However, by the time of filing this story neither the Ministry of Health nor the Office of the Prime Minister had issued an official statement about this developing but worrying matter.
