CORONAVIRUS

As the country grapples with ways of containing the coronavirus pandemic, traders have used this as an opportunity to sell masks and gloves of different colors and types to people.

 

This kind of business is booming in downtown Kampala with prices ranging from sh500 - 3000.

 

The sellers of this protective gear have said it is one of the ways they have joined hands in the fight against coronavirus after a 36-year-old male Ugandan tested positive for the virus which has killed thousands worldwide. 

 

The traders are appealing to passersby to buy and cover their 'soft parts' including noses and mouths.

 

However, some of the buyers are concerned about the quality and types they should be buying, tasking the government to issue out descriptives on what type of mask one should have.

 

Other buyers are concerned about the safety of these masks, fearing that thieves might use this chance to drug people.

 

Those who are not able to buy masks are seen using scarfs and handkerchiefs to cover their faces.
