Ministry of Health has Friday called off a press conference which had been called to update the nation on the Covid19 (Coronavirus) situation in the country.
The press conference was meant to take place at midday on Friday at the Uganda Media Centre.
The Health Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Ainebyona however, sent out a message less than an hour to the presser, saying it had been “postponed”
“All Media houses will be required to pick both audio and video content about this press conference from the National Broadcaster, UBC,” he said.
“This is meant to avoid overcrowding which is a risk factor for the spread of COVID-19.”
On Wednesday, State House at the last hour cancelled the invitation of journalists to President Yoweri Museveni’s national address on the Coronavirus pandemic.
In the address, the president banned all public gatherings and shut down all schools and places of worship.
