Mbarara Residents Relaxed About COVID19 Preventive Guidelines
Following the closure of 5 hotels which accommodated guests who later tested positive for COVID19 last Friday in Mbarara with the country registering 5 deaths so far, the public in Mbrarara is still reluctant about observing the ministry of health guidelines on the prevention of COVID19.
The hotels whose operations were suspended last week include Rwampara Suites, Leisure Park International Hotel, Golden Monkey, Africa Guest House and Acacia hotel all located in Mbarara city.
Although the government directed that traders and boda boda operators should record customers particulars, no one seems have been seen taking records of their customers.
A section of traders interviewed by our reporter at western arcade say they are still not bothered about COVID_19 and the situation seems normal to them while others say the cases that were registered in Mbarara scared them.
Not only the public is unbothered but also the authorities have been acting ling it is no one’s concern as everyone goes about their business.
Our efforts to get a comment from authorities on the situation were in vain.
