Keeping Ahead of COVID-19
The world is currently faced with a pandemic of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), a new virus that spreads so fast through droplet infection especially in crowded places and causes illness.
Since December 2019, the world has been beset by the global corona virus pandemic. To date, there are an estimated 3 million confirmed cases of the disease and 200,000 deaths.
The Ministry of ICT, through GCIC, seeks to push more forward-looking interventions that go beyond containment of the pandemic, to discussions about a post-covid19 future and how our communities can best prepare for a fast, and sustainable recovery.
The focus of the project will be to spark conversation and inform the masses within and beyond Uganda, and redirect attention to planning for a new, progressive post-covid world for our respective communities and countries.
Starting on 21 May, we shall be holding a number of online conversations,
Conversations such as these, while initially focused on the pandemic and raising public awareness, also aim at pushing individuals to reimagine a post-covid future for their communities and what can ensure our society’s fast recovery.
