According to a presidential media statement, President Nyusi and his wife are not showing any symptoms but have gone into isolation as a precaution.

Mozambique’s minister of Health Armindo Tiago said on state Radio Mozambique late Monday that the positive diagnosis was confirmed after a rapid test for the new coronavirus.

He says Nyusi and his wife decided to carry out a test for SARS-CoV-2 for precautionary reasons. It was a rapid test, says Tiago, and the rapid test was positive. Due to it being a rapid test, he says, they will carry out a PCR test for confirmation.

Tiago did not reveal where the country’s first family are isolating but said they would be watched by a team of doctors.

In a media statement, President Nyusi renewed his appeal for compliance with COVID-19 measures to prevent and combat the pandemic.

He urged all citizens over 18 years of age to get vaccinated. Mozambique has seen a surge in coronavirus infections in recent weeks with daily confirmed infections averaging 3,000, the highest figure during the pandemic.

Mozambique’s official death toll from the virus stands at over 2,000 people from nearly 200,000 reported infections.

This brings into question, as to how many types of vaccines Museveni has had so far.

He started with the one from China, at the onset of the pandemic, then he got AstraZenenica, and now got a booster from Pfizer. He is now the guinea pig of vaccines.

This is due to panic, like with everything else he does.

That man is always scared and clueless and will always gamble with his life and the lives of the citizens, because of fear in his head.

In other words Lysol, the man is the most scared and insecure person in Uganda and the whole wide world. Which is why he perverts his personal insecurity into national insecurity.
