President Museveni has ordered the Ministry of Health, Kampala Capital City Authority, and other partners to be on high alert following the discovery of two Ebola cases in Kampala.
The president said on his official twitter page that he had ordered “maximum mobilization” in case Ebola cases erupted in the country’s capital.
“For Kampala city, while the two cases that tested positive came from Mubende district and are regarded as Mubende cases, because of the presence of contacts of these two cases and the risks of infection. I have directed a full mobilisation of Kampala city into a response mode,” Museveni said in a tweet.
Kampala has two positive cases that came from Mubende District and are regarded as Mubende cases, but their presence raises the risk of infection.
The news comes as Mubende and Kassanda districts are currently under lockdown to prevent further spread.
The situation in Kampala remains usual, with crowds swarming the streets.
