No confirmed case of COV-19 in Uganda – Ministry Health 

(Thessherald)–In response to today’s rumors about COVID-19, the Ugandan Ministry of Health has strongly dismissed the reports posted on social media and advised members of the public not to lend plausibility or trust any media outlets.

“The Ministry of Health’s attention has been drawn to social media posts making rounds of an article stating that “Uganda has confirmed a COVID-19 case” from the website http://ucrtv.com/uganda-confirms-first-case-of-coronavirus/,” said the Ministry of Health. 

The statement urged the public to ignore allegations aimed at raising fears among citizens.

“The Ministry of Health would like to inform the general public to disregard this baseless rumor spread by individuals with ill intentions intending to malice the health sector’s efforts to prevent the importation of COVID 19.”

“To date, a total of 2,278 travelers including Ugandans and others travelling back home have been identified as high-risk and identified for purposes of follow up and institutional quarantine. So far, samples from 54 persons who presented with signs and symptoms similar to that of COVID-19 have been tested. Out of these, 52 tested negative while 2 are pending results from Uganda Virus Research Institute (UVRI). As of today, Uganda has NO confirmed case of COVID-19. 

“We appeal to the general public to always verify information from the Ministry of Health and please STOP spreading false rumors.”

(Thessherald)–The Kenyan Ministry of Health has confirmed the country’s first case of coronavirus (COVID-19) since the deadly virus outbreak in 2019.

Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said it is an imported case by a Kenyan national who came from the United States.

The Kenyan government has reportedly taken measures to control the spread of the pandemic virus that continues to threaten the world on an unprecedented scale.

“Members of the press and fellow Kenyans, I want to inform you that the Ministry of Health has confirmed the first Coronavirus case in Kenya,” said Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe.

The following Statement was issued by the Ministry of Health

The Ministry of Health has confirmed a Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) case in Nairobi. The case, which was confirmed on the 12th March 2020, is the first one to be reported in Kenya since the beginning of the outbreak in China in December 2019. The case is a Kenyan citizen who travelled back to Nairobi returning from the United States of America via London, United Kingdom on the 5th March 2020. She was confirmed positive by the National Influenza Centre Laboratory at the National Public Health Laboratories of the Ministry of Health. The patient is clinically stable, and is being managed at the Infectious Diseases Unit at the Kenyatta National Hospital.

The Government of Kenya, through the Ministry of Health, continues to strengthen measures to ensure no further transmission of the disease in Kenya. The National Emergency Response Committee on Coronavirus preparedness and response will continue to provide strategic leadership working through whole Government approach to respond to this case in the implementation of mitigation measures.

“I wish to assure all Kenyans that we have been beefing up our preparedness capacities since the first confirmed cases in China. The Government will use all the available resources to respond to this case.”

“The Government has traced all the contacts of the patient since her arrival in Kenya. Kenyans are reminded that most people who become infected may experience only mild illness and recover easily, but the disease can be more severe in others, especially the elderly and persons with other chronic illnesses.”


What is a coronavirus?

According to the World Health Organization, Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans.

In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?


The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually.

Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment.

Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.

Coronavirus declared ‘pandemic’ by WHO

(Thessherald)–The World Health Organization has declared the outbreak of the Coronavirus as a global “pandemic” and urged governments to take strong measures to combat the spread of the virus.

The announcement was made on Wednesday by the WHO chief Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, noting that the number of cases documented outside China had doubled 13 times over the last few weeks .

He said he was “deeply concerned” by “alarming levels of inaction” over the virus. A pandemic is a disease that is spreading in multiple countries around the world at the same time.

However Dr Tedros said that calling the outbreak a pandemic did not mean the WHO was changing its advice about what countries should do.

He called on governments to change the course of the outbreak by taking “urgent and aggressive action”.

“Several countries have demonstrated that this virus can be suppressed and controlled,” he said.

“The challenge for many countries who are now dealing with large clusters or community transmission is not whether they can do the same – it’s whether they will.”

Governments had to “strike a fine balance between protecting health, minimising disruption and respecting human life”.

“We’re in this together to do the right things with calm and protect the citizens of the world. It’s doable,” he said.

Locusts invade part of South Sudan through Magwi County

Deserts Locusts invade part of East African (Photo: File)

February 19th, 2020 (Thessherald)—The Minister of Agriculture and Food Security has confirmed the arrival of locusts in Magwi County, Eastern Equatoria State.

According to Onyoti Adigo, the desert locusts are now in Lobone, Magwi, Panyikwara and Owiny-kibul.

“On Monday we received a report that the desert locusts have entered South Sudan from Magwi County and we thought that it was the normal green grasshopper like it has been reported earlier but we sent our team with those of FAO and they confirmed the presence of the locusts in Magwi County in the area of Lobone, Owiny-kibul and Panyikwara,” the agriculture minister said on Tuesday.
The country representative of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) also confirmed the presence of the desert locusts. Meshack Malo says they are putting measures in place to tackle the locusts.

“Now in the preparedness, we have put together almost 1,000 back sprayers ready in which we are hoping to move tomorrow to the field to train young people so that we are be able to deal with them at the stage of the pupa. If we are not able to deal with them at that stage and they multiply, it would be a problem.”

Mr. Malo says the female locusts lay between 150 to 200 eggs.

“You can imagine currently we have about 2000, then there is a high likelihood that they will produce and will invite more females to come, that is what we are dealing with,” Mr. Malo added.

In February last year, the UN-Food Agricultural Organization issued an alert about the invasion of the desert locusts that was first reported in Yemen.

The locusts then spread to Somali, Ethiopia and Eritrea before crossing into Kenya and Uganda this year. Where they have crops and vegetation.

During the 34th extra-ordinary submit of IGAD heads of state and government held in Ethiopia a week ago, the regional bloc called on its member states to cooperate with the neighboring countries and exert more efforts to fight the desert locust invasion.

Experts have raised the alarm over the unprecedented swarms of locust that poses serious threats to food security and livelihoods in the Horn of Africa, including South Sudan.

But there were no coordinated responses from the region. The locusts travel by wind for at least 150-200km a day.

A swamp of locusts can consume the same amount of food per day as about 20 elephants, or 25 camels or 2,500 people.

What to do in Uluwatu Bali

Walk down the Uluwatu beach

A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table – Samsa was a travelling salesman – and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed in a nice, gilded frame. It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer.

Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather. Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, which made him feel quite sad. “How about if I sleep a little bit longer and forget all this nonsense”, he thought, but that was something he was unable to do because he was used to sleeping on his right, and in his present state couldn’t get into that position. However hard he threw himself onto his right, he always rolled back to where he was.

One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections. The bedding was hardly able to cover it and seemed ready to slide off any moment. His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, waved about helplessly as he looked. “What’s happened to me? ” he thought. It wasn’t a dream.

His room, a proper human room although a little too small, lay peacefully between its four familiar walls.
