Wait Continues For Sports As Museveni Extends Lockdown

 Wait Continues For Sports As Museveni Extends Lockdown

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, on Monday, extended the country’s lockdown for more 21 days.

The President said restrictions on public gatherings, boda bodas, arcades, salons and curfew among others remain in place.

Sports in Uganda has been banned since mid March, stretching to 95 days since.

Most Federations have cancelled out the leagues including FUFA that ended the Uganda Premier League season among other football competitions.

In his address, Museveni only increased the number of occupants in private vehicles from three to four and warned that Uganda is entering into a dangerous phase.

As of Monday, Uganda has not reported a Coronavirus death. 774 positive cases from 170,689 tests have been confirmed with 631 of those recovered and discharged.

“To support the process of continued lifting of restrictions, there is need to ensure compliance to COVID-19 prevention measures including wearing of face masks in public spaces, hand and environmental hygiene, among others,” Museveni said.

“These incidents of non-compliance pose a risk to all Ugandans and may lead to further spread of the infection.”

Museveni said that he is very hopeful on the front of the vaccine and treatment after a recent talk of the drug Dexamethasone.

This Month, National Council of Sports (NCS) released standard operation procedures for resumption of sports, which it is said that it was forwarded to the Ministry of Healthy.
