As China slowly begins its return to normal, in other countries around the world the pandemic is only just taking hold. Residents of Moscow and Lagos are the latest to join more than 3 billion people around the world now under stay-at-home orders.

Uganda’s Museveni begins jungle march to highlight liberation struggle | AFP

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni begins a six-day march through the jungle to re-trace the route through which his guerrilla forces seized power three decades ago, which critics dismissed as a bid to rally support ahead of 2021 elections. Museveni is one of Africa’s longest-ruling leaders, having seized power in 1986 after taking part in rebellions to end the brutal rule of Idi Amin and Milton Obote, and is expected to seek a sixth term in office in the next elections. He began what will be a 195-kilometre (121-mile) walk from Galamba, north of Kampala, and will end on January 10 in Birembo south of the capital where his rebel army faced one of its toughest battles in the fight to overthrow Obote.
