Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has declared Saturday a national prayer day for Covid-19.
The president said he got the idea from a Ugandan citizen who had a vision from God.
“God had told him in a vision that I should organise national prayers, scientifically organised, for God to deliver us from Covid-19… I declare 29 August 2020, a day of national prayers and a public holiday. Stay in your houses or compounds and pray,” Mr Museveni said in a social media post.
Uganda has so far recorded 2,679 coronavirus cases and 28 deaths.
The government imposed strict restrictions in March after confirming the first case.
