President Yoweri Museveni has on Saturday banned all passenger planes from landing or leaving the country due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The suspension is meant to protect Uganda which is yet to record any cases from the deadly pandemic rocking the world.

“No passenger planes will be allowed to land in Uganda or leave. Only cargo planes and their crew members will be allowed in the country. Meanwhile, those sneezing should keep away from the public”

Also implemented by President Museveni is the closure of all border points in Uganda moving forward.

He said the new measures will be in place until when all East African countries come up with a solution into the matter.

Ugandans have been advised to stay where they are and the new measures are not against anyone but they are all about manageability.

“Humans crossing into Uganda from the different border points are prohibited going forward. This is until we find coordination at the East African level. Please stay where you are. We are not against anyone but this is about manageability.”
