KASESE: THURSDAY, AUGUST 26, 2021
Kasese district in Rwenzori sub-region, Western Uganda is registering decline in coronavirus cases.
Dr. Yusuf Baseke, the District Health Officer (DHO) Kasese, has attributed the decline in cases to the continued adherence to the standard operating procedures by people.
“People are adhering to the standard operating procedures imposed by the ministry of health, and this has played a big role in reduction of cases,” he noted.
The health expert also said that the district health department dispatched a team of village health teams (VHTs) to continue sensitising the masses on the precautionary measures, and this has also caused the reduction of cases in the district.
There is hope that coronavirus will be defeated in the country, as other districts including Masindi, Buliisa and others are registering low cases of coronavirus.
Dr. Baseke revealed that during the second wave of coronavirus, the district registered 1,482 cumulative Covid-19 positive cases and only 60 died of the disease.
Kasese currently has 27 positive cases undergoing treatment, 24 of those are under home based care while only three are admitted at the isolation centres established at health facilities.
Dr. Baseke appealed to the people to continue with the good behavior of adhering to the Standard Operating Procedures provided by the Ministry of Health to forestall the spread of Covid-19.
