President Museveni has asked the public to boycott vehicles which are not observing the Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPS) as days to partially reopen education institutions draw closer.
Museveni said the government’s plan to allow only candidates at different academic levels to report on October 15th is to ensure there is social distancing among the learners as one of the key measures to keep away the pandemic from spreading.
The President added that the closure of all education institutions in March has saved lives since he hasn’t received information that any learner has died from coronavirus although there have been challenges of young girls getting pregnant.
The President said Public transport was opened but Ugandans should boycott it if they are not not doing what the government put in place.
