Uganda on total lockdown over Coronavirus. As it records 11 new cases in 24 hours, the Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has announced a total lockdown to combat the spread of coronavirus.

In a statement on Monday night, President Museveni accused citizens of not following earlier measures that had been forced.

“I made directives in my previous communication and since then, we have been monitoring the situation. We have realized there are still windows through which COVID-19 can still spread. We, therefore, think there is less risk in maximum restriction for a limited time than gambling with the assumption of the extent of the COVID-19 spread,” he said.

The Ugandan President said citizens would no longer be allowed to move from one place to another and banned the use of private vehicles.

“After much consideration, we have decided to prohibit all people-to-people movement including those using private means. This is because some car owners have turned their cars into taxis,” he said.
