Amidst global scare of Coronavirus (COVID – 19), the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has directed all broadcasters to give daily updates and prevention messages about the disease.

In a letter to broadcasters on Wednesday, the Commission’s Acting Executive Director Irene Kaggwa Sewankambo said that the announcements should be aired during prime time and should only be halted when the government declares that the virus is no longer a threat to Uganda.

The new directive to air adverts comes with no cost attached as the regulator says stations will air them free of charge.

This comes after government urged people travelling from countries that have registered cases of the acute respiratory illness that started in China in 2019 to stay away from the country.
