Mulago publicist Enock Kusasira said patients who sustained life-threatening burns “need a lot of cool atmosphere around them and therefore all those intending to visit the survivors should give them a break.”

He added: “People coming to visit survivors should stop because big crowds in the Wards raise temperatures and heat which affects the patients.”

“We still have some cases in 3B emergence ward and 2 victims have been discharged. However, the major worry is that most of the patients exceed 40 percent burns meaning it may be impossible for them to survive, but we are working so hard to save their lives,” added Kusasira.

He explained that some of the patients may have inhaled toxics which could have led to their lungs being affected.

Meanwhile, the death toll has risen to 35.
