Newly lifted Covid-19 restrictions are hanging in balance after President Museveni promised to impose them again if there is an overwhelming rise in Covid19 cases, in the coming days.
During the presidential address on Covid-19 yesterday, 31st December 2021, he opened the economy in phases and hinted that if cases rise, the economy would be restricted again.
Some of these measures may be reversed if COVID-19 high dependency and ICU bed occupancy exceeds 50% and if the daily rate of the hospitalization of critically ill patients is sustained at 30 per day for 5 days in 2 or more COVID units,” President Museveni said.
The economy has had a hard hit for the past two years after a lockdown that had been impossible in 2020 to control the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. The performing arts are tipped to open in late January of 2022.
