Last month, president Uhuru Kenyatta ordered closure of all learning institutions including tertiary institutions among other measures in order to curb the spread of the deadly virus. Since the day these measures were introduced, the rate of positivity has significantly decreased hence boosting the reopening of the country.
Today, 194 people have tested positive to the disease from a sample of 1,779 people tested, a positivity rate of 10.9%. This rate is slightly lower than that of yesterday and Saturday, something which show the country is heading in a good direction.
If the rate continues to decrease, then schools will be reopened without a doubt next month, the partial lockdown which was imposed in Nairobi, Nakuru, Machakos, Kiambu and Kajiado might also be removed and people allowed to freely enter these country.
Kenyans are urged to continue adhering to these Covid-19 measures as that is the only way the spread of the virus will be curbed.
