Uganda's prime minster on Friday said he went into a self-isolation after some of his contacts tested positive for COVID-19.

"I have gone into self isolation after some of my contacts tested positive for COVID-19," Ruhakana Rugunda said in a tweet.

"My own test result is negative, however, I have taken this decision as a health recommended measure," he added.

Rugunda is also the head of Uganda’s COVID-19 national task force.

Uganda has so far confirmed 557 coronavirus cases, with no death and 82 recoveries, according to the US-based John Hopkins University.
