KIU, Main Campus - Entebbe Grade B Hospital yesterday, June 15, discharged 47 more COVID-19 patients who have recovered, most of them truck drivers.
Dr Henry Mwebesa, Director of Health Services at the Ministry of Health said that all recoveries had two tests done on them to make sure that they are fully recovered.
All 47 were admitted to the hospital on the same day and Dr Mwebesa said that Entebbe Grade B Hospital has managed to have such huge success because it has gained experience in handling COVID-19 cases.
"These people have learnt a lot, they have gotten experience, and so they know what to do," Dr Mwebesa said while addressing journalists at the send-off he officiated.
He went on to further remind Ugandans that it is Entebbe Grade B Hospital that handled the first case of COVID-19 in Uganda, and this was a returnee from Dubai.
Dr Mwebesa also said that the allowances of the health workers who have been battling the Coronavirus are to be cleared before the end of the financial year.
