Two Chinese nationals who tested positive for Coronavirus in March have been discharged from Mulago Hospital after undergoing treatment.
They are part of the six Chinese who tried to cross to DRC via Zombo District but were intercepted and taken to the quarantine.
While in quarantine, two of the Chinese who had arrived in Uganda from China, tested positive.
Health Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Ainebyoona said “one (Chinese) was discharged earlier this week and another one today.”
He added: “They have been handed over to their embassy.”
Ainebyoona further revealed that Mulago Referral Hospital will today “discharge six patients who have since recovered from COVID-19. This is after they tested negative twice. They include three males and three females.”
This brings to 28 the total number of Coronavirus recoveries in Uganda since the outbreak of the disease last month.
Coronavirus cases in the country stand at 55 after 1,126 samples tested negative on Saturday.
