The National Planning Authority’s (NPA) COVID-19 weekly projections model shows that the number of cases will decrease in the next two weeks, compared to the daily average of the actual cases that were reported last week.
“The number of cases will decrease from the previous week’s daily average of actual reported cases of about 140 to around 115. For the week of 19th to 25th September, an average of 110 new cases per day and a weekly total of 77l new cases are projected. For the week of 26th Sept to 2th October, a daily average of 117 new cases and a weekly total of 819 is projected,” Eng. JB Muwanguzi Abraham – Manager Science Planning Department said on Tuesday.
Adding: “These projections are lower than last week’s in part due to a decline in the number of reported cases over the past two weeks.”
Despite the declining trend of new daily cases, Muwanguzi noted that the statistics from the Ministry of Health show that the number of admissions in both government and private hospitals has increased from 366 in August to 426 as of 12 September.
“Nonetheless, the number of critical cases has decreased with both government and private hospitals having 17 cases as of 12 September 2021,” he added.
To date, the cumulative cases of COVID-19 are 122,277; 381 active cases on admission at health facilities, 95,897 cumulative recoveries, and 3,129 fatalities.
