Cases of Covid -19 are likely to increase in Kasese town following an acute shortage of water in the area.

The observation was made today by a section of residents during a survey made by Rwenzori Daily in different parts of the urban center.

The residents argued that because of water shortage that has hit the Municipality, they are no longer washing their hands every time as it is recommended by the Ministry of Health. This, according to them puts their lives at risk.

Currently, women wake up at night and storm some tap stands looking for water hence putting their lives at a security threat.

Alice Masika, a resident of Kidodo in the Central Division of Kasese Municipality has no kind words about the problem. She says sanitation and hygiene have been compromised as a result of shortage of water in the Municipality.

Sharon Biira, a resident of Kizungu says they have resorted to fetching water from River Nyamwamba which is said to be having some elements of copper that are dangerous to their lives.

`Stella Biira, a resident of Kyababinga in Kirembe ward says they currently move on foot a distance of about three kilometres from their area to Kasese town looking for clean and safe drinking water.

Today morning, Ronald Batte, an Engineer from the National Water and Sewerage Corporation posted on social media that they had experienced a breakdown in their distribution pipeline network.
