The government has no intention at the moment to impose localised lockdown in Kampala metropolitan due the to Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), Information minister Chris Baryomunsi said last evening.

Baryomunsi said they are still studying the trends and if it becomes necessary they might consider the lockdown.

He urged the public to remain vigilant and continue to observe the Ministry of Health guidelines as well as reporting of any suspected cases.

The rapid spread of EVD has given rise to speculation that the government is likely to restrict movements into, and out of, the capita and its neighbouring Wakiso and Mukono Districts.
