Museveni Warns Ugandans against Fake Corona Medicine
President Museveni has ordered the minister of Information and national guidance Judith Nabakoba to close radio stations that advertise any form of treatment against coronavirus.

He said that people who advertise fake medicines purported to treat Covid-19 virus must be arrested because there is no such thing like corona medicine.
Museveni said although some herbs can cure certain illnesses like diarrhea, there isn’t yet any a medicine or herbs that cure the corona virus.
“close down radios that advertise fake medicines, this is a new virus so there is no cure yet since it’s new” he said.
He said the mandate to approve drugs lies with national drug authority (NDA)
