REPORTAFRIQUE 15 APR 2020

The Ugandan Ministry of Health has said that some persons placed under quarantine at the coronavirus isolation centres in the country have engaged in sexual intercourse with one another while in isolation.

This was revealed by a Permanent Secretary of the Uganda Ministry of Health, Diana Atwine, during an interview on Uganda’s Radio One. Diana Atwine expressed her worry over the “dangerous” practise which undermines the government’s efforts to curb the spread of the disease reports Ugandan local news platform, Watchdog Uganda.

“Ugandans are not serious.

Some who are in quarantine have even begun having (sexual) affairs. They move to rooms of others in the hotels where we have placed them.

“Others like in Mulago move from their rooms to visit their colleagues who are in other rooms, this is too dangerous and it will distract our efforts.” Diana Atwine said.

Atwine also revealed that this was the reason some people at the centres have not been released ever since they learnt about this practice.

Security has been beefed and movement is somewhat restricted within quarantine centres.

The Ministry of Health announced 17 places to be used as isolation centres for those undergoing mandatory quarantine in a bid to stop the escalating coronavirus cases. Such areas include hotels, hospitals, lodges and Universities and there are currently over 232 people under quarantine.

Uganda currently has 55 confirmed case of coronavirus with 8 recoveries and no death.
