Speaking during the State of the Nation address, president Museveni at the Kololo Ceremonial Grounds on June 7, 2023, said he had not been feeling well and this made him isolate himself from the wife – Janet Museveni.
He is reported to have taken several covid tests with some returning negative and others turning positive with a deep analysis. He said he had a heavy cold and thus a suspect of the corona virus as he addressed the nation of its economic and security status.
“This morning, I was feeling as if I had a cold. I took a rapid Coronavirus test which indicated negative. I did two more tests with deeper analysis. One of them turned out positive, the other was negative. So, I am a suspect of Corona as I speak. That’s why I came in a separate car with Maama [@JanetMuseveni ]” – @KagutaMuseveni his twitter read
