Uganda government seizes passports of travelers from countries with high virus cases

Government on Saturday said they had started confiscating passports of travelers from countries with high cases of coronavirus in attempt to prevent the spread of the pandemic that has wreaked havoc across the world.

This comes amid reports of travelers escaping from designated quarantines centers before end of 14 days mandatory isolation.

We have withheld all passports of travelers from category one countries until completion of the 14 days of mandatory quarantine. We hope this eliminates chances of escape from designated areas.
I want to assure you that Ministry of Health is doing all it takes to keep Uganda safe, Minister of State for Primary Health Care Dr Joyce Moriku Kaducu tweeted on Saturday.

According to the minister, Entebbe International Airport was peaceful and orderly on Saturday as travellers were following directives from the Health ministry officials regarding quarantines.
