The new cases are among 197 people who were tested yesterday majority of whom were returnees from Dubai, or other category one countries.
However, the samples collected from 104 returnees from Dubai or their associates on 25th March 2020, were tested for the virus and they were all negative according to President Museveni.

President Museveni however said that the efforts of identifying by temperature monitoring at the airport, quarantining the people on whom there’s some suspicion and tracing the ones who escaped from the quarantine seem to be working well.
