Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni tweeted last night that he was still self-isolating. The social media statement followed rumours that he had died after contracting Covid-19.
Museveni tested positive for the virus on the 7th of this month and said the following day that, he was taking forced leave.
He urged Ugandans to go for Covid vaccination and booster shots, especially the elderly.
Rumours have emerged on Twitter over the past few days that Museveni had been transferred to intensive care and later died from Covid complications.
Meanwhile, the World Health Organization declared last month that, Covid-19 was officially no longer a global health emergency but, warned that, the virus would continue mutating.
