Government probes how Boda rider got infected

The Ministry of Health is investigating how a boda boda rider from Wakiso District was among the 11 positive cases of Covid-19 declared last week.

Dr. Henry Mwebesa, the director-general of health services at the ministry,  yesterday that the response team was still investigating the circumstances under which he got infected.

“The boda boda rider probably carried people who had returned from Dubai or maybe he has a relative who had travelled,” he said.

“Our team is in the [Entebbe Grade B] hospital to find out more from him. You know he was still sick and we couldn’t ask him many questions,” the director general added.

He said at least 38 people who came into contact with the boda boda rider had already been traced by the response team.
