Covid-19 Cases Surge, Positivity Rate Hits 4.8%

By Shadrach Bethel,

The ministry of Health has raised concerns over the recent surge of Covid-19 in the country with a weekly record of about 600 cases.

Health experts and behavioural scientists say the decline in infections and deaths in the country made people relax on vaccination and observation of standard operating procedures, thus leading to a low uptake of Covid-19 vaccines and booster doses.

According to the director of Public Health at the ministry of Health, Dr Daniel Kyabayinze, Covid-19 cases have averaged 600 per week in the last two weeks.

He said revolving information and misconceptions about Covid-19 vaccination in the country could have confused the population.
