Uganda Poses 7PM Curfew for 14 days.

The Ugandan Government has given directives and austerity measures to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni has posed a curfew in the country over COVID-19 spread.

Speaking Monday during a live update, President Yoweri  Museveni put restrictions on the use of private vehicles and imposed a two-week curfew.

“Measure number one is to prohibit all people-to-people movement by everybody including those using their private vehicles, boda-boda, tuk-tuk etc,” he said.

The President noted that although restrictions had earlier been made by having private cars carrying only three people, some people had resorted to using their vehicles to transport others, increasing the risk of spreading the virus.

In addition to the banning of private vehicles on the roads for 14 days, President Museveni also imposed a curfew for the whole country to start from March 31, 2020, at 7 pm. But he said the curfew, however, will not affect cargo planes, lorries, pickups and trains.
