At least three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Uganda have tested negative after treatment and health authorities have confirmed how they are going to let them go back home.

“Three cases have tested negative twice after treatment and are being considered for discharge by clinicians,” a top health ministry official said.

Dr Henry G. Mwebesa, the director general of health services at the health ministry, said in a Thursday statement that the three cases had been tested twice.

He also revealed that 338 samples tested for COVID-19 on Thursday turned out negative as the number of confirmed cases remained at 53.

On Wednesday, the health ministry announced one case out of 214 samples tested that day.

“A cumulative of 3,862 samples have been tested for COVID-19 in Uganda. A total of 538 individuals are under institutional quarantine while 571 contacts to the confirmed cases are under follow up,” Mwebesa said.

Mwebesa said all the confirmed cases were in stable condition at four different hospitals in the country.
