Reports has it that coronavirus patients living in institution quarantine in Uganda have started engaging in s**xual activities. The Ministry of Health permanent secretary , Diana Atwine revealed during an interview with WatchDog Uganda that some of the patients in Isolation have started going the rooms of other people to engage in s**xual activities.
According to Diana, since they learnt about this practice, they have not been able to release some people who should have healed by now.
In her words ““Ugandans are not serious. Some who are in quarantine have even begun having (sexual) affairs. They move to rooms of others in the hotels where we have placed them. Others like in Mulago move from their rooms to visit their colleagues who are in other rooms, this is too dangerous and it will distract our efforts,”.
`I am concerned because the practice is jeopardizing the government’s efforts to curb the spreading of Coronavirus in Uganda.’ She added.
Recall that Uganda has over 50 cases of Coronavirus with 7 recoveries. This discovery is coming weeks after the country’s Ministry of Health announced 17 places to be used as isolation centres. The places include Hotels, Hospitals, lodges, and Universities, where over 232 people are placed under quarantine.
