EASTER | COVID-19
KAMPALA - The Bishop of Namirembe Diocese, Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira, has asked Christians to pray for health workers who are at the forefront in the fight against coronavirus.
"Brethren, I pray that we continue to pray for; the health givers, and whoever is involved in taking good care of us. Whether we are grappling with COVID-19 crisis or whenever we go to the different health centres for their care and treatment," Luwalira said in his Easter Message.
He encouraged Ugandans to remain strong and continue to pray that God may protect health workers as they work hard to protect our lives.
"Let us be encouraged and strengthened that even death could not hold Jesus captive. Out of the grave, he arose. He overcame the powers of death and because of his victory, we have the confidence that we too shall overcome, one day," Luwalira said.
Health workers have also lost their lives in countries like Spain and Italy, which have been hit hard by COVID-19.
A total of 53 COVID-19 cases have been registered in Uganda as of April 9, according to the ministry of health.
Worldwide at least 1,496,055 people have been infected by the coronavirus, which has also killed 89,435 as of April 9, according to Johns Hopkins University.
A total of 336,780 people have recovered from COVID-19 worldwide.
