Kisoro – Capt. Peter Mugisha, Kisoro RDC has disclosed reports that 19 quarantined people at Kisoro primary teachers college are engaging in sexual intercourse.
Capt. Mugisha’s allegations follow the discomforting number of used condoms found scattered all over the quarantine area.
RDC said sex was unacceptable in quarantines adding that it violates the social distancing measure thus escalating the prospect of COVID-19 spread.
“Those in quarantine at Kisoro PTC include 4 truck drivers from Kenya that were arrested last week in Bunagana town council in lodges with Ugandan girls, one Rwandese, one Congolese and the rest are Ugandans,” said Capt. Mugisha.
Dr Stephen Nsenbyiunva the Kisoro district Health Officer revealed that about 10 people that had been quarantined at Kisoro PTC for a period of two weeks were on Tuesday released after their results were found negative of coronavirus disease.
