The Human race is under attack by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and I add my voice to the millions of people around the world in the fight about this virus. I call upon everyone to follow the guidelines by His Excellency President Museveni, Ministry of Health (MOH) and World Health Organization (WHO) in order to prevent, to support and where necessary to offer treatment to those who have been infected by the virus. Scientists have said that there is no currently any medicine but it is also true that recoveries have been made. The human body has the capacity to fight this virus if the guidelines are followed. Let us be vigilant and not violent

Despite there being no known medicine or vaccine yet, the human body has proven to be able to fight the virus. As of today, 85% of the concluded cases are recoveries Say no to Stigma of the infected cases let us show care and love, together we shall defeat this virus,” Magogo added.

The Coronavirus has stagnated all the sectors of the world’s economy.

On the sporting sphere, virtually all the world’s sporting events including the Tokoyo 2020 Olympics have been put on a hold and postponed to 2021.

In Uganda, all the sporting events in this period are on hold until 30th April 2020, pending the close monitoring of the situation.
