Kampala: Uganda has registered the highest number of COVID-19 cases of 318 in a single day bringing total number of confirmed cases to 2,166.

According to the Ministry of Health, Amuru Prisons has 154 that include 153 in-mates and 1 prison staff while the contacts and alerts in Kampala are Kampala 65.

“The Ministry of Health undertook further investigations in Amuru Prisons. Out of the 205 inmates, 153 inmates tested positive. Out of the 28 prison staff, 1 tested positive for COVID-19. The Ministry is working with Uganda Prisons Services to relocate all the confirmed 152 inmates to Gulu Central Prison which is acting as an auxiliary isolation facility. The prison staff is admitted in Gulu Regional Referral Hospital,” Aceng said.

Minister Aceng blamed the influx of COVID-19 cases to complacency by Ugandans in observing special operating procedures such as social distancing and hand washing.

“Ugandans forgot where we came from. Unless we return to our initial determination to reduce the spread of COVID-19 our numbers will continue to increase,” Aceng said in a press conference where she was accompanied by Commissioner General of Uganda Prisons, Johnson Byabashaija.

These come after President Yoweri Museveni announced to issue new stringent measures in his forthcoming presidential address that may include announcing a new lockdown in areas of Kampala, Wakiso and Mukono.
