People living in institutional quarantine in Uganda have started having sex with each other, the Ministry of Health permanent secretary in the country disclosed.
In a recent interview on Radio One talk show, Permanent Secretary Diana Atwine revealed that most of the people quarantined at hotels now move to rooms of others to go sleep with themselves, WatchDog Uganda reported.
According to Atwine, the Ministry of Health (MOH) is greatly concerned because the practice is jeopardizing the government’s efforts to curb the spreading of Coronavirus in Uganda.
“Ugandans are not serious. Some who are in quarantine have even begun having (sexual) affairs. They move to rooms of others in the hotels where we have placed them. Others like in Mulago move from their rooms to visit their colleagues who are in other rooms, this is too dangerous and it will distract our efforts,” said Atwiine.
Uganda currently has over 50 cases of Coronavirus.
