It is encouraging that the numbers are stabilizing in Spain. Each day I have been watch the space with interest about the situation in Spain and I am OOH God.. Have mercy!!!
Here in Uganda, the situation is not so bad from the covid-19 perspective but it is politics that is killing our people, the situation has been engulfed by politician, and people are taking advantage of the situation.
This is making people to die, not of covid-19 but for example if one is in labour, they have to ask permission from the Resident District official permission to go to hospital.
The same applies when you have any other ailment. The situation is marred by beating people in the streets trying to find what to eat, sometimes being left to the dead.
Fortunately, since the infections are stabilizing in Uganda, we are praying for the best.
