Highlights

 

  • As of 30 April, Uganda reported 81 confirmed COVID-19 cases, 52 recoveries, and zero deaths. Of the reported cases, nine were in children. The majority of cases were imported by travelers and truck drivers. The national lock down, while effective in slowing the spread of the virus, is affecting access to essential social services.
  • During this reporting period, 40,000 children (20,080 girls, 19,920 boys) were reached with home-based distance learning to ensure continuity of learning after schools closed to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.
  • 10,309 children (5,216 girls, 5,093 boys) were treated for severe acute malnutrition (SAM) in refugee-hosting districts and Karamoja as of April 2020.
