Fatboy: Government should have focused on boosting the health sector instead of on lockdowns



Since March 2020 when Uganda confirmed its case of Covid-19, there has been a lot of information that has been shared by government, civil society, health officials concerning the spread, prevention and vaccination against Covid-19.


Some Ugandans have even been skeptical on whether Covid 19 is real or just a political weapon that government is using to control it’s opponents and citizens.


James Onen aka Fatboy is one of the people that is skeptical about the way government has been handling Covid-19 information which he says has been more scary than educative.


“I believe Covid-19 would not have been as messy as it is right now if government had focused on preparing the health sector instead of focusing on lockdowns and curfews. It would have been different if government had informed the public about these SOPs but allowed them to continue with their normal lives,” Fatboy said on the Thursday’s Fatboy Show on RX Radio.



Todays show was joined by Charlotte Asekenya, a Ugandan living in Turkey who feels the Turkish Government handled the situation better than Uganda.


“I already took my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine and will be taking my next one soon. We are hopeful that after the vaccine, our lives will be back to normal. I don’t think the people in Uganda are already receiving the vaccine so you guys have a long way to go,” she said.
