Europe is also registering a slowdown in death whereas United States has turned out to be the epic center of the pandemic with highest number of infections and registered death surpassing Italy and Spain.
Kabaka Mutebi has urged Ugandans and the rest of the world to maintain proper hygiene and also abide with governments directives put in place.
