Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni has dismissed claims that he was admitted in the Intensive Care Unit.

In his daily update on Tuesday, he said he had to been to hospital since he was diagnosed with Covid-19 on July 7.

"I also noticed some few individuals from, I think, Kenya, saying that I was in ICU etc. If I was in ICU, the government would inform the country. What is there to hide?" he posed.

In Tuesday's update, Museveni gave a chronology of his health status since the diagnosis saying his health has improved and the symptoms have receded.

He said he experienced mild flu-like fever, which was however, weaker than the usual flu and a roughness on the throat on Tuesday and Wednesday last week.

On Thursday, he had drowsiness and mild headache at night.

"This was up to Friday. Sunday, Monday and today, I have been busy doing paper work," he said.

The President, however, said he still tested positive of Covid-19, which has kept him in self-isolation.

He thanked those who had sent get-well messages.

"I thank those who took the trouble to sign the boards at the Gate of Nakasero," he said.

"Continue praying, we shall overcome."
