President Yoweri Museveni's national address on Covid-19 has been pushed to Friday, the presidency said Thursday morning.

According to Lindah Nabusayi, the president's senior press secretary, the address has been rescheduled to Saturday, 8pm.

The president was expected to address the country on the Covid-19 situation.

As of November 15, Uganda had administered 4,835,777 doses of Covid vaccines out of over 11 million doses that have been acquired so far.

The country's plan is to immunize 4.8 priority people by end of December as the economy fully reopens in January.

The health ministry has said that the main drivers of Covid-19 transmission in the country are non-compliance to SOPs, communal gatherings at drinking points, weddings, burials and social activities, and low uptake of vaccines

The ministry's latest data showed that more females were being infected than males, which was different in the first wave.

"This signifies widespread community infection," the ministry said in a statement.

The data showed that the largest affected age group are 20-29-year-olds and 55% of the confirmed cases are among females.

The president might also speak to the nation on security matters, following the explosions that happened in Kampala this Tuesday.
