The Governor of Rwanda's Northern Province Jean Marie Vianney Gatabazi said that no one among those deported was suffering from Covid-19.
The deportation comes after Uganda has registered four more new cases of Covid-19 to bring the total number of confirmed cases in the country to 18 by Friday.
In Rwanda, the number of confirmed Covid-19 cases has risen to 50 after nine additional patients were tested positive, the Ministry of Health said in a statement obtained by APA in Kigali.
Rwandan authorities announced a countrywide lockdown for 14 days and cautioned residents on visits and unnecessary movements upcountry and abroad.
There is no death as yet recorded in two neighboring countries.
