President Yoweri Museveni has assured Ugandans especially the Bazukulu that he will soon be fine.
Museveni on Thursday went into a forced self-leave to isolate himself after releasing that he has covid-19.
In the Friday press statement, Museveni said he is improving.
“It is now day 3 in my Corona status. Yesterday, day 2 of my corona status, I felt very sleepy around 11 am (the fifth hour of the day according to us, the People of the Tropics), yet I had slept well the previous night. Hence, I slept soundly up to the ninth hour of the day (3 PM according to the People of the Temperate lands,” he said adding,
“I slept at the fourth hour of the night, which the Europeans call 10 PM, and woke up at the 9th hour of the night (Shaaha mweenda z’ekiro) with a slight vague headache. I call it vague because it was not obwaabe (temples headache), it was not oruhora-hoore (the crown of the head) headache and it was not around the engata (the ring) of the head,”
Museveni further explained that when he sat up and drank more water as advised by his daughter Patience Kokundeeka, the headache went away.
“According to my longtime doctor, Diana Atwiine, this is a mild case and should be managed conservatively by using vitamin C, other vitamins, especially –D, and some anti-histamines. “What are the other cases described as?” I asked Dr. Atwiine. The other cases could be described as: moderate or severe. These according to her, need different interventions,” he said
He said that he is the one who told Dr. Atwiine [the permanent secretary of the Ministry of health] to announce his covid-19 status.
“I was still busy with other issues. I will wait for two more days and do the test again. It seems immunization and the boosters for the immunization, do help. I will keep you informed. Let everybody be fully vaccinated and for the elderly get boosters,”
Museveni delegated his power to Rt. Hon. Robinah Nabbanja, to represent him in Luwero at the Heroes Day Celebrations and as well rule on his behalf as he recovers.
“I sent Nabbanja to Luwero because the VP, Alupo, is representing us in Lusaka- COMESA summit,”
