The country is dealing with Covid variants that were fast identified in India, UK, and South Africa and the one that was recognized in China.

There are fears that if the infection rate continues to rise, then the Ugandan health facilities would be overwhelmed: the country may run out of Covid supplies such as oxygen.

The surge of Covid cases in the country promoted the Ugandan government to impose a partial lockdown that will last for six weeks.

The Ugandan authorities closed schools and restricted public gatherings as well as movements between districts.

According to our previous reports, Ugandan flights had been blocklisted in United Arab Emirates (UAE) following the surge in Covid cases.

At the same time, Rwanda through RwandAir has closed its airspace for Ugandan flights over an increase in coronavirus infections.

The country received 964000 doses of AstraZeneca in March 2020, but 750000 jabs have been used so far.
