The government of Uganda has decided not to give up on reopening the country despite the scary figures from the Omicron Variant that was discovered in South Africa.
The ministry of health Jane Ruth Aceng revealed a few days ago that the country will have to be reopened despite the Omicron threat.
“We do not want any lockdowns. Lockdowns have caused a lot of suffering to our people. Omicron or no Omicron, we shall open in January,” said Aceng.
The variant has been a global concern that has led to closure of borders for some countries and restrictions on travel in Europe and America.
Uganda has so far registered over 100 cases of Omicron Variant but are hopeful that the numbers will drop with time.
