Watoto Church, one of the leading Pentecostal Churches in Uganda has revealed that one of its choir members tested positive for COVID-19 that is caused by Coronavirus.
Pastor Julius Rwotlonyo, Associate Team Leader Watoto informed the Watoto Family that one of the adult chaperones of Watoto Children’s Choir, who returned home from a tour to the UK a week ago, tested positive for Coronavirus.
Rwotlonyo added that the individual has been isolated from the rest of the group after displaying mild symptoms.
“Health officials from the Ministry of Health ran tests and verified these as positive. We are monitoring his condition closely. His family has been informed and we’re in constant contact with them,” Rwotlonyo said in a statement dated March27, 2020.
Watoto also said that they’re working closely with Ministry Of Health
and the assigned health workers to follow all the necessary precautions to curb any further spread of the virus.
“The choir of 12 children and 10 adults have been quarantined since their arrival at Entebbe International Airport on 20 March 2020. At this moment none of the other members have displayed any symptoms of the virus. We’re praying for a full recovery, and the health and safety of everyone who has been affected by this pandemic,” said Pastor Rwotlonyo.
Watoto Church officials also thanked the Church Family for the support and encouragement of friends and partners in Uganda and around the world during the trying pandemic times.
