Minister of Health Hon. Jane Ruth Aceng together with other health experts on Wednesday launched the clinical trial involving the use of COVID-19 convalescent plasma to treat COVID-19 in Uganda at Makerere University.
Aceng calls upon all the patients who have recovered from COVID-19 to continue giving plasma since the experts are in need of it.
She also appreciated all the donors who donated plasma which has given a step forward for the experts to start the clinical trials.
“I have been informed that the donors came from as far as 498km from Kampala.
This shows that when we are united for a common cause, we can win”. She added.
