The United Arab Emirates has suspended entry for travelers from Uganda as part of efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
The state news agency WAM made the announcement on Wednesday.
Uganda is currently facing a second wave of the pandemic, which is more deadly and devastating. Health experts say the wave is worse than the first one since it is more transmissible and affecting young people.
Since the beginning of the month, Uganda has reported more than 5,000 new cases, the majority of them in Kampala, and more than 20 deaths from the deadly disease.
