The President said that such groups will be supported until such a situation ends
The president added that the Ugandan media fraternity is playing a critical role during the pandemic and that the government will provide them with stickers for identification.
“I have heard some cultural leaders are telling people that COVID-19 is a spirit and not a disease. Let no one come up with such things. This is a serious disease and such people should refrain from misleading the masses,” he added.
