Uganda bans outdoors exercises over coronavirus

Uganda has banned exercising in public as an extra measure towards controlling the spread of the coronavirus.

President Yoweri Museveni said that Ugandans should exercise at home and added that he would post a video on social media to demonstrate how this can be done.

The directive comes after videos and photos of people jogging and doing aerobics in groups in the capital, Kampala, were shared on social media.

The motorbikes are currently only allowed to carry cargo and not passengers.

The health ministry on Wednesday announced that it had confirmed one more case of coronavirus, bringing the total number to 53.
