"Lives transformed through e-services delivery"
There is no universally applicable definition. However, it can be said that a pandemic is the increased and sustained propagation of an extraordinary infectious human disease that rapidly affects all parts of the world and a large part of the global population
SARS-CoV-2 is a new strain of coronavirus that had not been seen in humans before. The epidemic began in the Chinese city of Wuhan, capital of the Hubei province. At first, the epidemic seemed to be linked to the South China Seafood City market. This market hosts merchants for seafood, poultry, bats, marmots and other wild animals, which indicates a probable animal origin of this virus. The virus was later confirmed to also transmit between humans. Cases have since been discovered in other regions of China and in other countries, often linked to a previous visit of Wuhan. The health authorities of the various affected countries are currently investigating this new coronavirus and the sources of the contamination.
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause symptoms ranging from the common cold to more serious illnesses, i.e. the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The new coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain of coronavirus that had not yet been identified in humans. COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the latest discovered coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. COVID-19 infection remains mild in 80% of cases. In order to delay spreading among the general population and to protect vulnerable and fragile groups in the population, it is important to take a certain number of precautions.
The NBI is reliable and has redundancy therefore will meet Wi-Fi needs 100%
We intend to offer reliable service of up to 99.7% availability
We shall be achieving maximum speeds up to 2mbps. Free Wi-Fi is a best-effort service intended to give basic access to the internet.
As NITA-U, we implemented industry standard security controls and measures in order to provide a safe and secure service
The provision of services is the primary responsibility of Government complimented by the private sector for various reasons. If you take the health sector as an example, you cannot say Mulago is competing with IHK, rather that they complement each other.
We are rolling out the service based on our current footprint of the national backbone. More areas will be connected within the next Financial Year
