Kasingye announced his status on social media.

Enanga said that since the outbreak in the country on March 21, the police force has been carrying out random testing of its officers.

“We are going to call for more random testing exercises because our officers are actively involved in the daily interaction with members of the public,” he said.

The health ministry has warned of a spike in COVID-19 cases in the country mainly due to local transmissions.
