A covid-19 positive patient at Entebbe Grade B Hospital has given birth to a healthy baby.

"The patient gave birth very well this afternoon through a Caesarean Section and the mother and baby are in good health," Dr Muwonge said.
Capt Dr David Magoba, a Special Forces Command officer, who is in charge of Covid-19 Isolation Section at the hospital said he was happy that the operation was successful.
By Friday, Uganda had registered 48 covid-19 cases.
