Uganda could face a another total lock-down as a result of the failure of the general population to under estimat the ministry of Health guide lines.
These guidelines were set following the outbreak of the covid 19 pandemic in march this year amongest which include,observation of social distance, sanitation or regular hand washing,and wearing of face masks, that apparently seems to be a punishment to biggest population in the country.
The guidelines are the punitive measures in the fight against covid 19 however in this current political season,politcians have opted to violate them as if the pandemic doesn’t exist through gathering of political processions and meetings.
According to Dr Diana Atwine the permanent secretary in the ministry of Health has stated in an interview that with already existing cases of death of people as a result of covid 19 the government will have no option while people are loosing lives apart from declaring the Lockdown since the population has refused to follow the Exisiting Health guidelines.
ATWINE has also warned against politicians for deliberately not being exemplary while doing their political activities and instead embark on Gathering processions without considering the guidelines.
Uganda so far has registered close to 10 people who have lost their lives as a result of covid 19.
