How were the past few days in Uganda and how could it go on?

Coronavirus infections

75Apr 2455Apr 15167May 4

Using log-linear regression on the data of the previous days, we could infer an increase of reported coronavirus infections in Uganda of about 8.12% each day. That corresponds to a doubling of the numbers approx. every 8.9 days.

The graph above and the following table show the course of reported coronavirus infections in Uganda assuming that the numbers are following an exponential trend without any slowdown.

What is the mortality rate in Uganda?

Deaths by coronavirus versus statistical death rate

1,1900000000000Apr 15Apr 24)}

In Uganda, approx. 1.02% of the population die each year. With a population of roughly 42,700,000 people in Uganda, that corresponds to about 1,190 deaths per day on the statistical average.

The graph above shows the reported daily deaths by coronavirus in contrast to the statistical number as baseline.

To estimate the mortality rate of coronavirus infections, we need to consider that a reported death already showed up in the reported cases a few days before. It is presumed that this lag is between 7 and 14 days. If we assumed that the lag was about 7 days, the mortality rate in Uganda would be approx. 0%.

The graph aboves shows the mortality depending on different presumed lag.

How could the occupation of intensive care beds in Uganda develop?

High standardMedium standard0Apr 25

The graph tries to predict the number of required intensive care units in Uganda. We assume the following:

  • The exponential trend of the past few days has continued and reported cases are active for around 12 days. 2% of active cases are so critical that an intensive care bed is required.
  • High standard: There are 30 intensive care beds per 100,000 inhabitants (12,800 total).
  • Medium standard: There are 15 intensive care beds per 100,000 inhabitants (6,410 total).

How can I protect myself and others?

The German Federal Ministry of Health recommends:

  • Keep the greatest possible distance when coughing or sneezing - it is best to turn away.
  • Sneeze into the crook of the arm or a handkerchief, which you can then dispose of.
  • Avoid touching when greeting other people and wash your hands regularly and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
