State Minister for primary health, Dr Joyce Moriku has given an update on the condition of the Uganda man who tested positive of coronavirus also known as COVID-19.
Speaking to the press on Monday, Moriku said the patient is steadily improving after two days of treatment.
The patient was identified on Saturday afternoon at Entebbe Airport. The Health Ministry said he had a fever, although he was not coughing, sneezing or having flu. A test was conducted upon which it was discovered he had the virus.
The 36-year-old Ugandan national is said to be a businessman and a resident of Kibuli. He had travelled to Dubai on a business trip, and it is speculated he picked the virus from there.
The Minister says all the people who were on the plane (Ethiopian Airlines) with the patient have been located and taken under institutional quarantine.
The government of Uganda has currently suspended all flights to and from Uganda to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
