Abstract

The 2019 novel coronavirus has caused a public-health emergency around the world. Though poor, Uganda is among the largest refugee-hosting countries in Africa, with over a million refugees. The outbreak has sparked concerns about the capability of low income countries like Uganda to control the spread of the virus while hosting so many refugees. Most of the refugees in Uganda are from South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Burundi, and Somalia.
