Ministry of Health Clarifies on alleged Coronavirus outbreak in Uganda.
*Ministry of Health Clarification on Coronavirus* Thursday Feb 13,2020.
Our attention has been drawn to false social media posts attributing statements to myself.
I would like to clarify as follows;
There is no case or suspect of corona virus in Uganda.
The Chinese being referred to in the social media posts have no novel corona virus symptoms.
However, they are under a 14 days isolation like anyone who has just *returned* from China.
Our surveillance officers visited them on Wednesday and found when they are observing the guidelines given to them for isolation.
Please, let’s remain calm and avoid spreading false rumours.
From Emmanuel Ainebyoona
SPRO-Ministry of Health.
