You need to protect yourselves because your susceptible to again contracting this virus. Make sure you keep washing your hands and keep social distancing
Four Covid-19 patients were on Friday (July 17, 202) afternoon discharged from Mbarara Regional Referral Hospital after their samples tested negative twice.
These had stayed at the hospital's isolation center for fourteen days after their samples tested positive of Covid-19. They come from Hoima, Jinja, Bunagana and Mutukura and were given certificates of discharge to confirm that they are free of covid-19.
"We know being in an isolation center is not the best place to be, but now you are going home free" said Dr. Rose Muhindo, the hospital's head of Covid-19 task force.
She however warned them to still take care since the virus is still in the country. "You need to protect yourselves because your susceptible to again contracting this virus. Make sure you keep washing your hands and keep social distancing," she said as part of her discharge speech.
Dr. Celestine Barigye, the hospital's director said that cumulatively, they have had 27 corona patients and have discharged 21 in total and currently have six in the center, of whom five are Ugandans and one a Rwandese refugee.
Those discharged have thanked the medical personnel at the hospital for the care and treatment they were accorded while in the isolation.
