 Residents, security agencies and health workers in greater Kibaale are in panic and fear following the confirmation of one positive case of COVID19 in Kagadi district.

Health workers and security personnel are reinforcing presidential directive and the Health Ministry guidelines as residents had shown laxity and defiance through opening bars, saloons, trans night discos, failure to wear face masks among others.

 Steven Kamar, the Kagadi district police commander asserts that enforcement of ministry of health guidelines and presidential directives is on as people had relaxed over preventive measures.

‘'We have intensified night patrols in all corners to ensure people heed to presidential directives and Health Ministry guidelines. People had started relaxing yet COVID-19 is on their doors. We want people to abide by preventive measures of wearing face masks, observe social distancing and sanitize themselves as the pandemic has been detected in our area'', he said.

David Otabong, the Kibaale district Police commander said police and health department have reinforced community policing through mass media on radio stations and monitoring on public gatherings to ensure the pandemic does not spread.

‘'It is our prayer that the confirmed case does not spread to many people. We are working as a team to enforce the Ministry of Health guidelines and presidential directive and we appeal to community members to work with us in curbing the spread of the pandemic'', said Otabong.
