The Polish medics will provide support for the Ugandan health service for over a month in response to a sharp increase in new COVID-19 cases.

Polish healthcare professionals are helping fight the coronavirus pandemic in Uganda as part of a major humanitarian project managed by the Polish Centre for International Aid (PCPM) in cooperation with the World Health Organisation.

"Our mission includes two two-week tours of duty," said Agnieszka Racka from the Poland Emergency Medical Team for Uganda.

"We are expected to provide medical support, but also work hand in hand with doctors in the cities of Kampala and Entebbe," she added, as quoted on the pcpm.org.pl website.

Mark John Kasumba from the Ugandan Health Ministry said: "We are grateful to the people of Poland."

"The Polish Emergency Medical Team is here, and we are glad for their presence ... Indeed it's such a timely assistance," Kasumba added.

In Uganda, 66 percent of serious COVID-19 cases are people under 45 suffering from the Delta variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, according to the Polish Centre for International Aid.
