Uganda has confirmed its second death from Covid-19 as the country continues to gradually ease restrictions imposed four months ago.

The ministry of health said the 80-year-old woman was from a densely populated informal settlement in the capital, Kampala.

She died at a hospital on Friday after exhibiting symptoms consistent with Covid-19 which include cough, fever, chest pain and difficulty in breathing.

A postmortem by the Uganda Virus Research Institute and the Makerere University confirmed that she had died of Covid-19.

The health ministry said it had began tracing individuals who may have come into contact with her.

Uganda recorded its first fatality from the disease last week, a 34-year-old woman who worked at a hospital in the eastern border district of Namasindwa.

The country has so far recorded 1,115 cases of coronavirus.
