I have said it before and i will say it again, there is no covid 19 threat in Uganda anymore. in the last 10 days, all the new cases of covid 19 are of people who are under quarantine in Government facilities.

There are now new cases coming in from the general public meaning that the who threat is under control and as such atleast have of the restrictions should be lifted with minimum precautions.

We cant continue luiving under fear all in the name of covid 19. Lets just put in place preventive measures but get rid of restrictions which stampede human rights

We should not be delusional. We are testing at most 200 cases a day. S. Korea was doing up to 10,000 in a day.

What is the probability that there are more undocumented cases coz of low number of people tested?
