Take personal precautions, and look out for your colleagues too.
President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has taken to his twitter platform to address the nation concerning the issue of CoronaVirus.
"Fellow Citizens, people in Uganda, today I want to address you on the issue of Coronavirus. Coronavirus is real, it does not kill as much and fast like Ebola, but spreads at a very terrific rate," said the President.
Museveni noted that the Virus undermines economies because it is disruptive and inconvenient.
"Coronavirus is becoming a global threat, which means that we must rely heavily on our personal behavior first, while the ministry of health guides us on other measures," he said.
Museveni has appealed to everyone, to join hands in preventing Corona Virus, even at a personal level by precautionary behavior. "We fought Aids by behavior, even before we got medicine," he said.

"Now as the ministry of health guides us, let us take a personal decision not to shake hands unnecessarily or expose ourselves to conditions that will facilitate the spread of Coronavirus," he advises.
The President has gone ahead to implore those who have specific symptoms similar to Coronavirus, even as simple as a running nose, please self-quarantine from the rest and seek medical guidance and confirmation that you are free from infection.
