The Police in Kitgum on Saturday night fired live bullets in a foiled attempt by a COVID-19 suspect who tried to escape from institutional quarantine. This happened at Pandwong Health Centre in Kitgum Municipality in Northern uganda.

The Pandwong Division Chairperson Raymond Ocan says the suspect reportedly turned violent as he forcefully tried to find his way out of the centre after complaining of the harsh living conditions at the facility.

The COVID-19 suspect, a resident of East Ward Cell in Pandwong Division, was placed under mandatory quarantine a week ago on recommendation of his relatives after he sneaked into Uganda from South Sudan where he has been working for the past two years.
