A photo of a man wearing a mask at the airport standing with three other people has gone viral in Uganda with people claiming that he is the man in quarantine for bringing back the Virus from Dubai but here our team of experts breaks down the whole truth.

Blizz Uganda investigative team has conducted a research to find out whether this is the "36 year old male" MOH reffered to while announcing on TV that Coronavirus is already in Uganda but the results were satisfying.

With the help of Google Reverse Image tracker, we have been able to confirm that this Photo is real but False as it does not connect anyway to the virus outbreak in the country.

In fact, this image was captured at JFK Airport in New York on Feb. 27, 2020 by a New York Times news team just after the virus had started going viral cautioning people to take care.

On March 2, 2020, Buffalo News also used the same picture in a story cautioning people to remain calm and take precautions to keep themselves safe from the virus.

Rumor has also been going around claiming that it is Bobi Wine and his People Power team that sent this man to Dubai to bring back the virus to the country as Uganda had not registered any viral case.

Therefore, we conclude by alerting you that with our Fake News Checker, this is false.
