Museveni Resumes Normal Official Work After Recovering from COVID-19

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has today resumed official work as Head-of-State, a day after confirming his recovery from COVID-19.

In a statement issued by the Presidential Press Unit, Museveni chaired the weekly cabinet meeting at State House Entebbe on Monday.

He was in company of the First Lady, who is also the Minister of Education and Sports, Mama Janet Museveni.

Museveni has been under self-isolation at Nakasero State Lodge after testing positive for COVID-19, eleven days ago.

Questions about how he could have gotten infected still linger given that he was adherently following the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

He announced on suunday that he is COVID-19 free after the latest test came out negative.

“On the war with corona, it is now confirmed that I am a veteran graduate of the war with that enemy. It has been exactly 11 days since the battle started officially on the 7th of June, 2023, on the Day of the State of the Nation Address. I had actually felt a mild pre-flu type of state on Tuesday, the day before. I had, however, ignored the symptoms until the following day when I had a slight running nose for a little while. That is when I called my doctors to take samples for checking. By 1100 hours, they came back to tell me that two of the samples were negative but one was positive. That is when I decided to travel to Kololo for the Address in separate cars with Maama,” Museveni said in a statement.

He further recommended Ugandans to avoid alcohol, promiscuity, careless driving, avoiding malaria, smoking, exercising for fitness, eating healthy African food (maize, cassava, millet, bananas, fruits, milk, beef, chicken, fish, etc.) and ensuring that they  get vaccinated against all the vaccinatable diseases and have all the vitamins as some of the ways to keep health.
