Uganda Cancer Society Statement on COVID19

The Uganda Cancer Society (UCS) wishes to appreciate the pragmatic steps taken by the Government of Uganda under the leadership of His Excellency Gen. Yoweri Museveni to safeguard the lives of Ugandans and all other persons currently in the country from the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. We believe that if the entire country heeds to the directives by the president and guidelines issued by the Government through the national task force and Ministry of Health (MOH), we have a good chance of containing and not exacerbate the spread of COVID – 19.

We therefore want to sincerely appreciate the national task-force and the MOH for leading operations in the fight against COVID-19. We would like, in a similar and special manner, to commend the medical teams in hospitals and isolation centres as well as security services that are on the front-lines of the battle against COVID – 19 in Uganda. Your patriotism and selfless service to the nation cannot be appreciated enough and will forever be remembered in our history – thank you!
