Speaking from parliament, the minister in charge of health opened up on how the country lacks the necessary facilities to handle the deadly coronavirus.

At the moment about $61,000 has been wired to assist the students stranded in Wuhan China.

The students have complained about how they are slowly running out of food and masks in China.

Through social media, they have called the government to evacuate them.

The government through the press argued both Ugandans and Chinese nationals to self-isolate themselves once they arrive.
