Singer-turned-Presidential Advisor Catherine Kusasira has shared her ordeal of how she lost about 10Kgs while battling the deadly Covid-19 disease that she hasn’t fully recovered from.
The “Love Tender” singer noted that when Covid-19 struck her, like any other person, she lost her taste and smell, and could not even breath well.
When she went to the hospital, unfortunately, she found when most of the hospitals were filled to capacity.
She was then referred to another big hospital where they charged her huge sums of money amounting to Shs9m before she was attended to.
According to Kusasira, she did not have all the money in cash but was asked to pay a deposit of Shs6m at that particular moment in order for the doctors to attend to her.
The singer has requested the Head of State and Ministry of Health to come to Ugandans’ rescue saying hospitals have turned the disease into a business to mint money from people in the name of Covid-19 treatment.
She went on stress how hospitals have hiked their treatment fares on treating Covid-19 and that many people are going to lose their lives if something is not worked upon to lower the costs.
Kusasira added that she feels bad whenever she meets people who are not wearing face masks. She therefore advised people to always follow the government set Standard Operating Producers.
