He said after being examined by his doctor, it was found that he had a very low level of Vitamin D, which caused him to get a severe infection of Covid-19.

“My Vitamin D levels were very low, my Vitamin B 12 was very low. imagine the President of Uganda is malnourished and risking his life,” Museveni said.

“I immediately started taking vitamins. Then we got vaccines and added vaccines,” he added.
