This rumour is confirmed false and is of high priority – here's why:
It has been established that the person in question, whose identity has been withheld aside from their Chinese nationality, had traveled to China on leave. When he returned to Uganda, his colleagues at the construction company CICO thought it was risky to stay with him, suspecting that he could have returned with the deadly virus that has so far ravaged their motherland. As such, they asked him to stay in solitary confinement for 14 days to guarantee their safety. He was then driven to a hotel in Arua where he was checked in by the workers who didn’t know he had just returned from China. The workers however discovered that he was in isolation when his colleagues sent him food and protective gear. The hotel alerted security, who in turn asked the District Health Officer to assess the situation. Confirming the rumour false.
