Uganda’s National Planning Authority has said that there is no imminent threat of a third COVID-19 wave in the country.
In a statement, NPA said that the decreased rate of slowdown of the new cases may indicate that people are now starting to live with the COVID-19 pandemic.
In its COVID-19 case projections, NPA has outlined an indication of a continuing decline in daily new cases, with an expectation of an average of 454 new cases per day for the week ending July 24.
The model is projecting a total of 3,177 new cases for the week July 18-24, and 3,036 for July 25-31.
As a result of the findings in the projected trend, NPA observes that the total lockdown has been successful in reducing the spread of COVID-19.
Uganda has thus far recorded 90,656 positive coronavirus cases and 2,392 deaths.
