Uganda has discharged three Covid-19 patients after they tested negative for the disease.
Dr Henry Mwebesa, the director general of health services, on Saturday said the trio were released after two consecutive negative results, each 24 hours apart.
The number of discharged patients is now 4 including the index case. Confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Uganda stands at 47. Stay home, Stay safe,” a Sunday tweet on the Twitter handle of the Ministry of Health reads.
They were handed certificates of recovery by Prime Minister Dr Ruhahana Rugunda at the Entebbe Hospital where they had been admitted.
They will now undergo psychosocial support before being reintegrated back into the community.
Meanwhile, 15 others are set to be discharged on Monday once the ministry of health completes community sensitisation, according to Health Minister Dr Jane Ruth Aceng’.
Since the first coronavirus case was confirmed in Uganda, about 3,600 samples have been tested and 53 have turned out to be positive.
