Some of the issues Uganda think need clarity
Hon Victor Oling Patients with medical emergencies eg. Status epilepticus, Sinus bradycardia, Emergency Hypertension, Hypoglycaemia, Severe diarrhoea, Stroke etc can’t be lockdown / blocked from obtaining hospital care & we all know this quite well. Most of them have minutes to get proper treatment or else will DIE… Cancer patients ,Sicklers etc needs more prayers…..Asthma too.
copied from a brother’s post. Would be good to get clarity.
Willy Ouma Let him clarify on the issue of closing down the hardware shops and yet he allows construction to go on, where do they get the construction materials from? He should also clarify on the issue of use of private cars, if it’s total lockdown, why allow people on foot to travel and not private cars? Does the private cars spread coronavirus and not people on foot? Thanks
