An eight-month-old baby is among the patients put in isolation in Uganda after they tested positive for Coronavirus.

On Wednesday, Uganda’s Minister of State for Primary Health Care Joyce Moriku Kaducu said that Uganda has recorded five new cases bringing the total to 14.

The minister said that two of the new cases are Chinese nationals while the others are Ugandans.

The baby’s father is reported to have traveled back to Uganda from Kenya recently.

Uganda reported its first case of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) early this week.

On Saturday, President Yoweri Museveni announced that Uganda was closing all its border points to prevent people from crossing into the country in a bid to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
