The Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) together with officials from the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) in charge of COVID19 relief food quality checks are working 7 days a week, to ensure that Ugandans get good quality food. UNBS came on board on Easter Sunday and since then, the quality of all COVID19 relief food that comes through the OPM stores in Kinawataka has to first be checked and cleared by UNBS before its sent to the OPM office for distribution to the public. 341.3 metric tonnes of beans and 238.5 metric tonnes of maize flour tested on 15th, 16th and 17th April 2020 passed the quality test and a ‘release food’ note was sent to the OPM
