President Musevei at Kololo Independence Grounds
I have flagged off a fleet of vehicles to help the Ministry of Health in the fight against COVID-19.
As earlier stated, my intention is that we build a crisis fleet for the Ministry of Health and the country. This fleet will be spared for times of crisis like these and I will NOT allow officials to misuse these cars.
To start with, we are targeting at least 1350 cars such that every district gets about 10 cars.
I want to thank and salute the people of the Republic of Uganda for your spontaneous response through donating selflessly. The donations from you people have been enormous.
Again, I salute you for your patience and vigilance in our goal of limiting the spread of COVID-19. We have been engaged in the fight against this virus and we are doing well so far.
We started at the airport and we are now shifting to land borders. Tests have shown that we have problems with the truck drivers and at this very moment, the Minister of Health is meeting line ministers of the different East African Countries to map a way forward.
We want to test these drivers before they come here. They should only be allowed to move when the results are released.
I thank you once again, we shall defeat this virus.
