He said: “I have come to sound a warning that we are entering a dangerous phase. There are fewer COVID-19 (infections) in rural areas. It is now rampant in the city because people there neglect guidelines meant to fight it. People in villages should not go to Kampala.’’

The new variants of COVID-19 include those from South Africa, India, UK, and Nigeria, noted Museveni, saying they are more dangerous and mostly affect young people. He said unlike in the past where mostly old people were infected, this time children and young people are hit the most.
