President Yoweri Museveni has tested positive for Covid-19.
He told Parliament this afternoon that: “This morning, I was feeling as if I had a cold. I took a rapid Coronavirus test which indicated negative.”
“…I did two more tests with deeper analysis. One of them turned out positive, the other was negative. So, I am a suspect of Corona as I speak. That’s why I came in a separate car with Maama (Janet Museveni),” he said.
The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health, Dr. Diana Atwine, confirmed that the President is Covid-19 positive.
“Today June 7, 2023 H.E The President tested positive for covid-19 . This was after developing mild flu -like symptoms. However he is in robust health and continues to perform his duties normally while adhering to SOPs,” Dr. Atwine said in a tweet Wednesday evening.
