People Quarantined in Bukedea district demand for Chicken, Chips and Beer

The people quarantined in Bukedea district of eastern Uganda have demanded for beer, chips and chicken during their stay in isolation.

John Paul Ogwang, the Assistant District Health Officer for Bukedea, who is also managing the isolation center at Bukedea Senior Secondary School, says the isolated people have rejected porridge and potatoes that has always been prepared for them as breakfast.

The 31 people in quarantine demand that their diet be changed to also include milk and bread.

However, Charles Ichogor, the Deputy RDC of Bukedea, has rubbished the demand saying that being in quarantine is not about convenience and advised them to take whatever little the Task Force is providing in good faith.

“What they should be doing right now is to pray to the Almighty in Heaven to enable them come out safely from the quarantine,” said Ichogor on a telephone interview with Aica.

The 31 people in quarantine [since Saturday 16th May, 2020] are said to have been in contact with a businessman who tested positive of corona virus in Bukedea over the weekend.

Aica has learnt that so far, results for the first seven people who were put in quarantine have tested negative of COVID-19.

The district Task Force is continuing to trace for the people who might have possibly got in contact with the case that was reported in the district.

Meanwhile, the businessman who tested positive of COVID-19 last weekend is in stable condition at Mbale Clinical Research Institute, where he is receiving treatment from.
