Increasing Cases of Covid-19 in Kasese blamed on Learners who recently returned from School.

By our Reporter

The increasing cases of Covid-19 in Kasese district have been blamed on learners who returned from schools in the High risk districts and are since vending an assortment of merchandise in the urban centres.

Eliphaz Muhindi Bukombi, the District Chairperson told our reporter shortly after attending a District Covid-19 Taskforce Meeting held at the Mayor’s Gardens in Kasese town that some of the learners who returned from schools in Kampala, Wakiso and Mukono tested positive to Covid-19 and in the process ended up spreading the disease to their parents and siblings.

Muhindi said it was so unfortunate that a section of parents supported their children with money to vend some merchandise while moving from door to door and streets in the urban centres.

According to Muhindi, Kasese district has so far registered more than 400 accumulative cases of Covid-19 with 16 in the Intensive Care Unit and 18 deaths.

However, the District Boss revealed that other cases could be as a result of people congregating together at burial ceremonies, asking the people to refrain from attending such functions and follow the presidential directive that limits the number of mourners to 20.
