The case is of a 32-year old Kenyan truck driver who arrived at Malaba border from Kenya.
“The WHO international Health Regulations require that every case is counted and treated in a country where it was tested and confirmed. Against this background, Uganda is required to add the five (5) positive foreign truck drivers to our statistics (i.e the 1 Tanzanian and 4 Kenyans). This includes 2 cases who had earlier gone back to their respective home countries.
