 Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni on Monday said some COVID-19 lockdown measures would remain in place in a bid to prevent the virus from spreading in the community.

In a televised address, Museveni said that the country was now entering a dangerous stage where more community cases were being registered.

He said lockdown measures announced in March such as the closure of schools, worship centers, salons, night clubs, bars and shopping arcades would remain in place.

The night curfew would also be in force until scientists advise otherwise.

Uganda has so far registered 774 cases with no deaths. (Xinhua)
