‘‘We are working on our vaccine. Actually, our vaccine will be better than all those because it will cover all variants,’’ the president disclosed in a televised address.
According to Mr Museveni, production of the vaccine in Uganda was delayed by lack of Covid-19 patients.
‘‘Around April, we had a problem. We did not have enough patients. Now there are plenty of patients (for trials),’’ he noted, further stating that he was in touch with several actors, worldwide, to help solve the vaccine crisis.
‘‘The vaccines we got cover few virus variants like the original Wuhan and Indian strains. The vaccines which are there now may not cover the risk,’’ Mr Museveni added as he announced stricter measures to contain the viral disease.
