Uganda: Deconfinement following receipt of first doses of Ebola vaccine

1 Min Read

After a lockdown launched on 15 October by the President of the Republic of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, the country’s authorities lifted the night-time curfew yesterday in the districts of Mubende and Kasanda, while remaining on high alert to prevent a new crisis.

The lifting of the restriction is due to the fact that there is currently no transmission, no contacts being monitored, and no patients in isolation said Uganda’s Deputy President Jessica Alupo.

In addition, the decision coincides with receiving the first doses of the Ebola vaccine in early December. The World Health Organisation also considers that the epidemic is nearing its end, after many cases of infection and deaths.
