Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni on Friday said all citizens in the east Africa country will “soon” be required to wear face masks as the government plans to ease COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.

CGTN AFRICA reported that Museveni, in a televised address to mark International Labor Day, said local manufacturing companies are already producing the masks.

The president is expected to announce measures on Monday to ease a 35-day lockdown.

“Very soon we may require everyone to wear a mask. Local manufacturers have already started making,” Museveni said at State House, Entebbe, about 40 km south of the capital, Kampala.

On Tuesday, he said the country would lift nationwide shutdown after the ministry of health concludes a rapid assessment of the prevalence of COVID-19 in communities.

Museveni said the outcome of the survey will be announced on Monday and will determine the next steps the country would take when the 35-day lockdown ends of May 5.

Uganda has reported 83 confirmed COVID-19 cases, with 52 recoveries.
