She said COVID-19 does not spread itself but infected people who move with places spread it to one another.

Kawooya however showed a lot of concern among the public who have kept on violating the standard operating procedures on COVID-19 pandemic adding that, ‘we be kigezi people when we live’.

Kawooya said that Uganda entered the second wave of the pandemic because the people relaxed adherence to the Ministry of Health Guidelines on COVID-19 19.
