The Government of Kenya through Health Cabinet Secretary (CS) Mutahi Kagwe has extended the ongoing Dusk to dawn curfew for another 30 days.
CS Kagwe announced today during the launch of the Covid-19ninformation Portal in conjunction with the Media Council of Kenya.
The CS also said that the ban on public gatherings and political rallies has also been extended, adding that the extension period will be used to Vaccinate mere people.
Across Africa, curfews have helped to save lives and to protect the health systems from being overpowered by the pandemic. This strategy was put in place because while virus behaviour is the same night and day, human behaviour is not. This measure will help to prevent the widespread of the Covid 19 Virus.
The health CS also said that continuous observance of individual public health measures like mask-wearing in public, hand hygiene and avoiding unnecessary physical interactions should be upheld.
