When President Museveni last addressed the nation, the confirmed cases were less than 100, but are now at 227 with the cumulative number of foreign truck drivers who have tested positive for COVID-19 in Uganda at a record 125.
He is expected to explain two key measures, the testing of drivers before they return, and return of Ugandans from abroad.
