The U.S. Embassy in Uganda developed a ‘COVID-19 Resource Toolkit’ in collaboration with Uganda’s Ministry of Health and other partners in order to expand access to key COVID-19 information and resources across Ugandan society.
The toolkit includes links to videos, public service announcements, posters and other information on COVID-19 signs and symptoms, prevention and care, mask wearing, social distancing, hand hygiene and other health-related information.
“The more people who know how to keep themselves and their families safe, know the appropriate symptoms for which to look, and know how to seek the care and treatment they need, the greater the success we will have in beating COVID-19 together,” U.S. Embassy Chargé d’Affaires Christopher Krafft said on the release of the COVID-19 Resource Toolkit.
He asked community leaders in Uganda to take the COVID-19 communications resources in this toolkit and utilize, implement, and most importantly share them as extensively as possible.
To date, the cumulative COVID-19 cases in Uganda stand at 10,788 with 7,066 having recovered and recorded 97 deaths.
