Today we have released the results of a study on Coronavirus in Uganda done on the initial 56 patients. The study was led by Dr. Bruce Kirenga-founding Director, Makerere University Lung Institute (MLI) and Professor William Bazeyo in collaboration with other stakeholders. Makerere is proud to contribute in the fight against Covid-19.
The study established that the novel Coronavirus is more prevalent in men and affects patients with other morbidities more.
